An interesting new brake from Ashima. External fluid transfer and no pistons make this a bit of a departure from convention. Apparently, they have superb modulation. Click the link for a preview of these brakes.
Taken from the pitbikers site:
"This is just a quick nod to Sherwood Pines Cycling Club to say it's now up and running. And we have our first event on this coming Saturday 15th - 10:30am, Sherwood Pines Cycles Shop, beginners/easy ride. All welcome.
Nothing too difficult, why not come along at meet us!

Continuously variable transmission for your bike! No gears or missed shifts to worry about just a constant sweep of ratio with a 360% range. However, all this smooth luxury comes with a 2lb weight penalty over competing geared hubs.
Still, very interesting stuff. Click the link for the full test ride report.
