Disc brake

Disc brake

Disc brake

Anyone have a model or dimensions for a Avid or Hayes caliper?  I'm trying to add disc brakes to frame that only has cantilever mounts.

RE: Disc brake

I'm working on some, Avid BB7, but it's not finished yet. What kind of file format do you need? I use SW2010 and can save/export to various formats. Not sure if you need additional information, but most of the disc brake manufacturers do have a certain amount of documents you can use to build your own drawings/models. Hope doesn't have usable drawings, Avid (SRAM group) also, Hayes did have some gif images of their CAD drawings, but nothing available now, so I understand what sort of frustration you must be facing. IS mount standards are available around in pdf format, but I guess you did that part of the homework.

RE: Disc brake

STEP or IGES works.  That's the brake that I'm using.

Yeah, I found some IS PDF's on the Hayes site and some really good overhaul and service parts manuals on the SRAM site, but no caliper info.  I'll swap a model/print of my adapter for the caliper model.

RE: Disc brake

Hope you don't mind waiting to the end of the weekend, one of my RAID drives just failed and even though I have a proper backup of files, no application to finish the job :(

RE: Disc brake

Not a problem.  Sorry to hear about your drives.

RE: Disc brake

No worries. I keep everything separated. On that machine only the operating system and applications for work. Everything else is on a separate machine (data, personal stuff etc)
These day hard disk drives are really not expensive - no wonder that some eventually have to fail... Especially if compared with software for business purposes...

RE: Disc brake

Finally... For some reason, the whole bb7 file got garbled and useless. To compensate for the promise, I can offer a Hope brake calliper, no pads, though, however, it might be of some use. I'll be working on the Avid BB7 as time permits, but for now, I think I can't do anything more. Hope this this "Hope" calliper can help... Saved as IGES file.

RE: Disc brake

No worries.  It should get me close to what I need.  I'll return the favor soon...Thanks

RE: Disc brake

Just let me know if you can open it and do something useful with it. I only have SW and can't test how it opens in some other application. BTW, it's set to be a rear brake calliper

RE: Disc brake

Opened just fine with SW 09 vintage.  I'll get it home and check it with their major competitor.  It's configured for what I need.

RE: Disc brake

All right then. Just let me know if you need anything else that might be bike related. I mean, bicycle or tricycle related. I'd be glad to help if I can.
