    Any elegant solutions for rear brake mount on track frames?

    I want to set up a track frame of mine for SS, and want front and rear brakes. The fork is drilled and there's a rear bridge, but alas no hole and I don't want to drill. I've seen the clunky and somewhat flimsy looking keirin brake adaptor from Dia Compe, but thought surely there must be a better solution out there.

    Anyone know of anything??

    I wouldn't drill it. I'd probably just run the keirin brake adapter.

    Yeah, no way I'd drill. But that adaptor looks like a high school metal shop project, and I've gotta believe that there'd be a market for a better one. I saw pics of a very slickly designed robust yet light unit on a Brit forum, but it was hand built by a machinist type for his own bike.

    You will need a disc brake crank adapter, obviously

    You can always swap and store the stock fork for one with a brake hole.

    Check out leader's carbon forks. They are drilled for front brake and have track rake to somewhat* match your stock fork to boot.

    Just put a front fork on the back, I don't see what the big deal is.

    f you order directly from Tempra Cycle you save like $50 depending on the exchange rate at the time. Seeing as They were my local shop while I was in Tokyo, I have seen my fair share of these kits installed. If you actually plan on using the rear brake I would advise against this kit. Most of the buys running these are using them just for looks as they need a rear brake by law. They are a pain to adjust, tire changes become a hastle, and the wire routing near the crank can be iffy. You can order the nice CNCed brackets that are included in the kit separately and they look much nicer than the plain dia-compe ones. If you have any questions about them shoot me a PM

    What a coincidence. I had no idea about those guys, but I was riding through town today and happened past their shop. Looked cool on the way by but I didn't stop in as I was on my way to work.

    Truly appreciate the tip and offer. Now that I've taken a closer look, I see your points. If I decide to go for the hardware, I'll PM. Thanks!
