Some of you might have noticed that one of the bikes we had at Interbike and during our grand opening had prototype direct mount EE brakes on it. Here’s a few more pictures for you. They’re weighing in at about 160g with pad holders but no pads.
Direct Mount EE Brakes on Jack’s English.
The rear direct mount brake tucked under the Bottom Bracket.
The centering adjustment bolt on the left side will be modified for production.
I use the Shimano DA 9010 direct-mount rear brake on my 2013 Madone. Unfortunately, the left brake arm/cable bolt (looking at brakes from below) stick out from the non-drive side of the frame a bit. This makes it impossible to use a Stages (inner crank arm based) powermeter as it will rub on that brake arm. See below (not my bike).
So my question: looking at the design of these new EE DM brakes — is there a chance that the footprint is narrower on the non-drive side and that it might work with the Stages PM? Thanks for any help.
