Here’s brief pictorial description of our new removable brake system that is available on the Third Wave, new Funday and Forecaster frames. It is made up of 3 elements: Gyro tabs with screws, pressure fit cable guide and brake mounts.
- The gyro tabs are your standard removable gyro tab.
- The cable guide is really unique because it uses the cable’s tension to keep itself attached to the frame. There’s a little tab welded in a channel that runs the length of the underside of the top tube. The channel not only allows for a place to attach the cable guide, but acts to hide the brake cable too. At the tab, the cable guide is installed from the front then the brake cable is installed like any normal braking system. The tension created at the tab is enough to hold the whole system in place. There’s no holes, no screws just a simple system.
- Starting this year, all Sunday frames will come with removable brake mounts. Remember all Sunday mounts are angled which is a Sunday original. It is possible to attach the mounts in 2 ways: A 10mm wrench flat on the outside or a 4mm allen slot on the inside of the mount. Put them on or take them off, either way the mounts attach super simple and super clean.
