Looking at buying a used Fuji track pro on Sunday.
At home I have spare dropbars and road style lever brakes hence I can grasp the hoods if I buy the bike and install 2 brakes.
My thoughts are to take a brake with me to see if spacing allows use of.
Front looks easy. Has some sort of hole filled in on forks. Should be able to redrill.
Rear looks near as easy. Drill stay brace. Will I need to strengthen the brace? Will it want to fold at the hole during application of brakes? I guess I could build an elongated washer to spread load across entire brace and part stays?
I have read others have modified track bikes. Anyone around please? Any failures?
Surely 2 normal washers will spread the load enough to prevent damage from occurring.
