maybe someone with the time and cash could expirement on hydralic brakes,
we have the left laterel free for a master cylinder like on motorcycle or quad.
and there must be some points in drive train where we can grab a disc,
my choices would even include sprokets as disc's,
hell why not,
there are alot of miny calipers already wide spred in ap's from snowmobiles to quads so used parts for expirementation should make this posable.
another point :who says it has to be one caliper to a side?
if we find three spots per side for calipers we would have bocou brakeing power to add to arsenal of decent tools,
the left laterel is faster to the brake then the left foot serching for an eluseve tiny weany parking brake petal,
and time between saying :ooh shit and brake aplication is critical on them suprize slopes!
being able to switch from any of three brake systems during decents may help eleviate heating the brakes up as well.
one poor bastered at olean had to be lowered down a hill by winch cable from machine behind it.
if manufacturers wont do the R&D work then we should.
