bht said:if you use by rated power my motor give to you zero problem my new motor builded in unitemotor factory and cant say is bad quality

Overclocker said:just got a budget quad piston for the front only. the rear tire is already easy to lockup
working great so far. i also got these 203mm rotors. thicker and heavier than shimano RT-66 that i replaced. 250g each. seems to be more powerful too, probably due to having more contact area i.e. less drilled out
trazor said:I've found the same conclusion. I use 180mm on rear wheel since is enough to lock up, 203 in front.
Up to now my prefered brakes are the Shimano Zee. https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/shimano-zee-m640-disc-brake/rp-prod82434 , quad piston designed for downhill, amazing modulation.
Those 203 rotors you have look thick. Are the usual 1.8mm width? Magura makes 2.0 rotors by default. Talking Magura, I purchased one MT5E, these come with brake cut switch and are flip flop (you can use left or right). https://www.amazon.com/Magura-MT5E-Carbotecture-Bicycle-Brake/dp/B01EQS1Z6O . Last years I've been using other Magura device to make the brake switch ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015DJWWM6 ) but I can't find any dealer that carry these anymore. That makes me ask... do you have a brake switch on the brike?
Ianhill said:Really like this bike looks a nice well positioned ride, how do you find the rear wheel bearing hold up? I only ask I got a kuberg it's uses 219 chain and a simular looking hub with either a 12 or 15mm axle if I remember correct and after 100 miles or so the wheel needs a rebuild bearings shot with the torque loading how you getting on in this regard, Thanks again Ian.
Ianhill said:Couldn't be a pain and ask you the dropout width of your rear ?
Sounds like I need a better hub ideally it's tapped out.
