I'm working on restification project, an older leading link front suspension 'BMX' bike.
It looks like I'm going to run alloy hoops with a freewheeling rear hub (either single or multi speed, I haven't decided). This means I'll want to add brakes. Rears are no problem. However, in the front tere is no way to mount a brake caliper to the fork crown as the wheel will move in relation to the crown. The only place that is fixed in realtion to the wheel is the horizontal member of the leading link suspension.
Any thought on the rigidity issues of mounting an old long reach sidepull caliper at the rear apex of the "U" shaped link?
Or, should I just look for a coaster brake hub?
