@voxelwise Custom parts are out of budget for one piece made, but what about a small series (like 50 pieces) if there is other Brooklyn owner interested..
If I remember well, Canti stud are hard to braze on V1 because of the distance between seatstays, and their shape/angle
« looks like the stops are welded on a tiny bit too close together no? just take some spacers out from the inside of the brake pads »
« You got it, abet not the fault of the welder.
The seat stay are very narrow on that Gangsta, which put the brake arm a lots closer to the wheels than it should, it happen on my Gangsta when I had the canti mount fitted.
Solution was using Open Pro and taking off the spacer, which you can see from the photo, bear in mind that this is the V2 Gangsta, where the stay is a little wider apart than the V1. »
« Tyres are running in nicely, you have to run the brakes really close to the rims to get a nice pull on the lever but once tweaked its braking beautifully. Only issue is the rear stays are flexing slightly coz of the pressure from the brake so I'm looking into a brake booster that ill potentially have to modify to strengthen the rear, but saying that I've been bombing around the last few days and I've had no problems »
As you said, arch support plus Canti stud is a great option, but it’s really disgraceful, I’ce used this tricks for a while on my V2, only got this shitty pics.. (support is there but I had remove the brake at the time)
I would love to get those BMW brakes but don’t want to afford 800$ for them..
