    Arai drum brake question

    I have an Arai drum brake (9.5mm axle model). Can I use this on a Shimano tandem hub? If not, than what hubs, other than Phil Wood), can I used with this drum brake?


    Thanks in advance!!!

    Just bore it out to 10mm and you'll be fine.

    don't want to drill

    Thanks for that advice, but I'd rather not drill this drum brake. I have a set of tandem wheels with Phil Wood hubs that I would occasionally be using. I wanted to be able to swap out the drum brake between wheelsets as needed, since my Phil Woods are 36 hole, and I wanted a beefier set of 48 hole hubs for loaded touring rides. I just don't want to spend the money on another set of Phil Woods, nor did I want another drum brake.

    So are there any other tandem hubs that take a 9.5mm axle Arai drum?

    It will be far cheaper to get another drum body at 10mm than to get another tandem hub!
