PRODUCT: Disc Brakes

BMX Specific...............

RideMiSC reached out to us letting us know about their new BMX specific disc brake kits

At this years worlds we spoke to someone about his Custom Disc set up where he had fabricated the mounts to his frame himself…. he is a professional welder so was a cool side project for him as it turns out but the RideMiSC doesn’t need the 10,000 hours of welding practice. We had to find out more.

Check out what they told us……..

Currently I have disc brake kits for Stealth, Onyx, and Profile disc brake hubs with 10mm axles for frames with standard style rear dropouts, along with kits specifically for Staats Bloodline frames that have vertical dropouts that work in conjunction with the above mentioned disc hubs but also accommodating those with 15 & 20mm axles.

I welcome orders for custom applications if needed by the customer to work around certain frames or components.

I am working on designing more caliper brackets to work with the larger 15 & 20mm axles that most frames manufacturers are coming out with that have dropout axle reducer plates, which I also fabricate.

Currently I am designing my own stainless steel disc rotors and soon will be testing a carbon fiber rotor, also of my own design, but these will be made in a smaller size than the 140mm rotors which are the smallest currently available.

The advantages my hydraulic disc brake kits offer are they offer unsurpassed brake modulation which is effortless with one finger operation along with the benefit of working in all adverse weather conditions.

The system is the most consistent brakes everytime the brake lever is squeezed compared to v-brakes which are not consistent and are always in need of fiddling with not to mention the troubles involved with setting those up. My brake system is a “set it and forget it” setup which doesn’t require any frame modifications and is very easy to setup. Once a rear disc hub is laced into a wheel, the hydraulic brake systems come pre bled (may need to have the hydraulic hose shortened, which most any reputable bike shop can perform or I can offer that service as well) the entire brake setup can be installed in minutes.

Disc brake hubs are currently only available in pro sizes (sorry not for the younger riders) but those who already own a Stealth pro rear hub can have their hub internals exchanged into a pro disc hub shell to save money vs buying a complete new rear hub.

There are many brands of hydraulic brake systems available but my kits are designed to work with the Shimano XT system as an inexpensive choice, but I highly recommend either the XTR M985 or XTR M987 hydraulic brakes for the ultimate in brake modulation, feedback, and power to allow the rider to scrub minutes amount of speed when needed vs inconsistent v-brakes which tend to gran too much, drag with one pad, or not work consistently or at all depending on the weather conditions.

My kits consist of my custom fabricated brake caliper bracket, world’s lightest 140mm stainless disc rotor (soon to include my own small stainless rotor or carbon rotor as soon as they are made) and a set of 6 titanium disc rotor bolts. Then a disc brake hub is needed along with a hydraulic brake system.

My kit is priced at $110 US and $120 US for overseas orders. I am also a Stealth hub dealer so those hubs and parts can be ordered through me and I can also offer to get the customer a hydraulic brake system if the complete kit would like to be ordered through me as a one stop shop order if needed.

The RideMiSC Brake Kits have already made is as far as Australia from Huntington Beach California, have a look at the project……..
