I don't see any PMs from you, try again perhaps?

Oh I see now that I sent the PM to migueralliart :) you should have it now...

Edit: or well actually it was migueralliart I wanted to buy from, I am writing in wrong topic. I don't think these here will work on front fork...? If I am wrong please correct me.

This was resolved via PM, but for the benefit of everyone else the torque arm was designed for a rear fork, but there's no fundamental reason it wouldn't work on a front fork. The angle of the flats relative to the disc mount is what's important, which is why I include a printable template on the first page of this thread.

VIDEO of diy mount for other side

Post by mudale222 » Aug 13 2017 9:13am

hi huys,
Got mine a while ago. Very good quality. Very thick and very hard steel.
I accommpliched to install them on both sides and want to share it with u..
Took me about 2 days (15 hours) complete with driving and cutting and everything:



About clamping.. i don't really think u can clamp a 9.5mm of harden steel... i'ts just got too much structure integrity.. if u really want to clamp it, i think u should take the dremel and do stripe in the middle of the torque arm and then u can drill for bolt and nylock or just use a houseclamp (the bigger the better).

You can actually get a measurable deflection using a M6 screw and hand tightening it. Whether or not it's needed is another matter altogether, but I've measured several tenths of a mm deflection when tightening the clamping bolt in mine. Of course when it's clamped around the axle the deflection is much less, but still there.

What are people doing for the non disk side? Has anyone DP420 epoxied these torque arms to the frame?

Edit: I just watched Mudale222's video. Thank you. Anyone else?

It wasn't the intent of the design to epoxy them, but if you look a few posts above this one someone was planning on doing just that. Perhaps he will chime in here...

Thanks, I just saw that. What about everyone else? Are they just using 1 torque arm?

A single arm seems to be the most common, just based on the fact that maybe 80% of people only order 1. Maybe they're using a different one for the other side, but I don't think 2 are necessary for most people. Then again I like selling 2 at a time, so maybe just order 2 to be on the safe side :)

Actually my epoxy just came couple a days ago.. didn't put it.
Did about 1000km on this setup so far with no problem, fast roads and stuff.
I think if it's won't make any movement i'll keep it that way without the epoxy.
For people who's want to use the epoxy (specally real high power system), i'm suggesting not to relay on it as there only solution, but to attach it by other means and use the epoxy as second secure way.
Remember that epoxy (if and when crush) will do it instantly and catastrophically.

Yep, plenty available. I ordered a whole bunch of them and they’ve been selling regularly. I should probably post periodically so people know they’re still available.

Thanks. Is it possible to have it pre-drilled? I don't have a pillar drill so my holes are not precise.

I can tap it myself

What would be the price for 1 shipped to the UK?

Thanks

First post,

To purchase via Paypal, go here.
Price is $35 which includes US shipping. You'll need an address set up in Paypal, which allows me to automatically print a shipping label and expedites the process significantly. For non-US orders, pm me with your Paypal email address and I'll send you a request or give you my paypal email address.
Thanks Justin_le we're here thanks to you. All the best to the mods for their tireless work keeping it on an even keel.

Nice work, and LOTS cheaper than a one-off or several other well made arms.
