Spoke mod is a very old brake mod. Stiffens up the feel of the brake by removing the slop/slack in the straddle cable.

The spokes never bent in the right spot for me. I used stiff coat hangers instead and bent those. Does the same thing. And yes the braking power increase is crazy

I'm on the vital legit list!

As long ass both sides are even your good and its long enough your good.some even use two spokes.one for each side.or a hanger works tooo! If u have the cable u can use that as a reference also

I've seen this and I ahve also seen it done with chain as well. Both are really solid.

I run dual lowers when brakes are on, so the straddle cable is not needed for me.

This one is similar to what I saw, BUT I saw where the chain was connected to a cable hanger via holes drilled, and then it was put into the brake arms similar to this photo. A touch heavier, BUT no flex compared to a cable. ONLY works if you use a straight cable or a basic single to double gyro cable.

that is very cool... never thought about it before now. i ride a dk fury aluminum race frame with v brakes [not because i want to but because its all i got] so i cant do that but i am in the market for a new bike. im thinking eastern shovelhead. i need something soon as my frame and cranks are cracking from street riding. used to have a dk general lee untill it got stolen out the back of my jeep.

I just bent the spokes so itd fit. I didn't feel like making it fancy just to try it out. It is wonderful. I put some good ole lube on the parts where it connects and this thing is smooth and holds tight. Best thing for it ever.
