Well, it only took about two hours of mind numbing frustration to install a rear brake in my NoCom. The mounting hole barely left enough room for the nut, way up underneath there somewhere. And the window cutout didn't leave room for the brake shoes. So, I used a front brake and spaced it higher up. Then, you can't reach the cable clamp or adjust the shoes. Big fun. Luckily, the front is a drum. Chainguards, cranks, chain and it will be ready for testing.

That's my universal fix for everything. :) It doesn't fit? Cut a bigger hole!

Thom,
I have no problem with a rear caliper brake. I bonded an aluminum plate on top of the carbon bridge as it was a waek spot to handle the braking load. By raising the caliper brake position with the aluminum plate I was not able to use a ZeroG caliper. Had to install one of them KillerB calipers which have extended brake pad slots.

Also bonded in a carbon tube on the bottom to add some strength to the rear frame.

By now you should know if its not right you chop it up amd make it right. Get with the program dude and make it work
