BSA A10 twin leading shoe brake

<< < (3/3)

ANDY HIGHAM:
Sorry TTJohn, size for size a twin leading shoe brake will always be more powerful than a single leading shoe. If you have found the reverse then the twin leading shoe brake was either not set up properly or it was damaged.

STAR TWIN:
It is all too easy to set up a TLS brake badly. Of course, all the usual brake rules apply. Choice of linings being paramount. Most aftermarket linings are far too hard. Something a bit softer like AM2 or MZ41 (if you can get them) are far better for normal use.
The thing to watch with TLS brakes is stopping on a steep slope. You can find yourself setting off backwards despite hauling on the brake as hard as you can.
