So I was speaking to the guys at Fairwheel, and apparently BTP has gone out of business. That kind of screws up my plan to run Powercordz and the Orion brakes as they were the only company I new of that made the brake clamp thing. Anyone know of someone who can make these at a comparable light weight?

Thanks.

WW user Matthais Hellore. (apologies if I misspelled the name!)

You would have seen his same posts on the subject if you searched, which it seems you did since you are referencing the part that was discussed in that other thread.

I had custom carbon clamps made. But any local CNC workshop should be able to make you ALU clamps. They are quite simple in design. I just decided to have made carbon clamps, because I think they look great with brakes.

im leaning towards carbon - they look better and the price difference from Matthias is only 20 euro. I was more worried about the strength of the clamps. Where did you get your carbon pieces?
