Just installed a hidden rear brake caliper on my 2006 Ully. It is a Brembo unit and I always wondered why Eric never did this from the start.

Never worried about what Eric did with his bikes; he was always about a half a step off in everything.

Erik ,however, knows what he is doing/trying to create. In the real world, his idea(s) have to go past the accounting dept, and the bean counters have a lot of sway as to what gets put out the door. He may have wanted to install a hidden caliper, but after accounting figured they could save $3.00 a unit . . . .

Does look nice, though.

I would like to see your caliper. Can you give us a shot of it from another angle, please? Did you build a custom bracket?

Which P32 are they shipping? You can find the P32F caliper for around $50 on ebay.

Thats where I got mine. Factor in import duties, 20% value added tax and shipping costs from USA to UK and it is a hell of expensive item to hide.
