No more Arai brakes

Posted By: Terence Morris
Date: 28 October 2008

According to St John Street Cycles, the Arai drum brake has gone out of production and while they have still some complete units in stock, they have no more replacements for the shoes. May be shoes last for years, but what if a spring should break?

Does this mean that the only 'third' or drag brake must now be a disc? How does this affect the argument about discs being unsuitable for this purpose i.e. will overheat on long descents when the bike is heavy laden &c.?

Anyone with answers out here?
