Bit more info that may be helpful:
thats from my post below.
I was going to link that photo when i saw it but i had issues with the hub.... i.e. missing spoke hole.
Doesn't help with the hub, but Magura do a setup with one lever to 2 calipers:
You're sure the Zee lever has twice the volume/pull as std levers?
AFAIK 4 pot calipers often use smaller pistons and hence the same lever.
Not sure at all, working off the assumption of larger piston area at the calipers so would be more suited to run two than the standard lever. Not an unfair assumption I dont think, hopes bores seem similar although that doesnt mean jack all about the piston area depending on the design as Ive never had one apart.
Ive got an adaptor for a non disc hub to convert it to a disc. Its made up of a flange that bolts the the hubs original flange with a 6 bolt disc part to bolt to. Ill try and dig it out and get a photo up.
kevs, something like this I assume, it could solve my 4 cross spoke length issues.
Very similar to that, was bought for a go kart project years ago and sat in the shed ever since.
sorry about the crappy pics, but most amazingly was that fact i found it in the tip of a shed.
Why 4 cross?
I have to say I am not with you on your assumption. Any 4 pot calipers I've seen has way smaller pots. Do the Zee levers look any different to other shimano ones? You'd expect them to if you are correct...
The 4 cross is based mainly on trying to build a stiff a wheel as possible, penny farthing riders seem to use 4/5 cross most (although some use up to 7 cross) to build a strong wheel over that diameter. Seems the most sensible idea to me, more cross -> stronger wheel, especially if I am using the equivalent of a 360mm disc.
It is a pretty large assumption, I admit but its either that or my even crazier idea that I am trying to figure out of a positive pressure brake booster system, which will produce many OTB moments.
Looks pretty similar to the one I've seen as well. Have you ever had it fitted? How well does it/does it not clear the caliper??
never had it fitted as such im afraid, was used in such a way with sprockets instead of discs to have a certain gear without ground clearance issues. similar to the way guy martins speed bike had two bottom brackets.
