Default Re: I aquired another VW

With the trikes, we only have two clyinders or calipers to fill, instead of all four.. so we use a smaller bore and taller pedal to keep the effort down..

Its all about hydrolic leverage..The longer the stroke,, the less effort needed..but you foot has to travel more..
