Needs a handlebar and seat upgrade ASAP,...LoL! I also changed the seatpost (just because I didn't feel like removing the deat I swapped out from the seatpost it was being used for on another one of my folders). I also upgraded the pedals (the stock ones work, but are somewhat small for me).

Hi tds101, what's the OLD at the rear wheel on this bike, please? Do you think it's 130 mm or 127 mm? Thanks!

Sorry, but I'm not sure. All the ibnformation I find about this particular hub specify either a roller, coaster, or disc brake. This MIGHT be the disc model w/a dust cover over the attatchment point for the rotor.

Sorry about the dust,...it's been sitting awhile.

Well, we seem to have a slight discrepancy. My bike has caliper (?) brakes, not roller brakes. The information available is somewhat off. Unless, there's parts available to upgrade the bike to roller brakes. That would be excellent.

If you have a Nexus rear hub, as it appears you do, the splines for attaching a roller brake module are under the plastic cover on the non-drive side of the hub. IIRC, you remove a 17mm nut to get the cover off. The roller brake module does not add much to the O.L.D. of the hub (at most a millimeter).
I made this modification on a bike with a Nexus 7 and another bike with a Nexus 8.
Be aware that you will have to provide an attachment for the brake module's torque arm or the brake won't work.


Here's a bike with a Nexus 8 hub equipped with a roller brake. The (home-made) torque-link connector is visible. The thing that looks like a disc brake is a heat radiator for the roller brake.

FYI I have no interest or intention of adding or including any such parts. I was simply answering a question. Whoever buys this from me gets it as it is.
