Any User Feedback on Maddock Drum Brake?

Just curious if anyone on the forums has any first hand experience with the Maddock Machine "Mad Dog Drag Brake" (sometimes called Maddox Drum Brake)?

I wrote a piece on the brake during it's development and then again shortly after it's release in July 2013 and am curious to hear from users on how it has performed in the field. Just trying to come up with a balanced 3-year update as that particular blog seems to get a lot of traffic.



Feel free to shoot me a PM or to reply here.

We haven't but early this year I had a conversation with Dan at R&E about them as they had some experience. He had a beautiful tandem on their Facebook which had one installed so I asked how they were working. So second or third hand he said they were working well but did have some overheating like the shave Arai on long descents. You might want to check in with him.

It is the Red/White/Blue Erickson on the sixth row. https://www.rodbikes.com/images/galle...php?tag=tandem

Just looking for a complete picture that includes several inputs.
