Damn it!

I promised myself that I would keep my old Brembo brake pump and clutch lever, but I just can't resist ISR's stuff. It's just so... bl**dy gorgeous in a Mies van der Rohe "I didn't intend for this Skyscraper to look this good, I just paid a lot of attention to the proportions" kind of way.

So... I called Acke Rising (owner of ISR) to hear what I should buy. He suggested the old style brake pump (he knows I'm building a tracker), but I had my heart set on a radial one. What do you think: radial or old school?


  1. damn nice levers dude! they both look similar so go with the radial. you know you want to!

  2. Old. The new ones are too 'look at me'!

    Hey D,

    Should go for old school. The radial is huge! The radial one will mess up the sleek look of the wide bars I think. Cheers, Marcus

  4. Thanx guys.

    It looks more and more like old school...

    They're cheaper too:-)


  5. The 21-014 racing radial master-cylinder looks like it would suit a tracker well, I assume it uses a remote fluid reservoir?


  6. Well, here are some things to consider:

    1) You've already got a USD front end and big wave front rotor on this bike - there are old school styling elements, but you've obviously used a more modern approach also. The radial M/C wouldn't look out of place just because it's a newer style.

    2) This bike is awesome and it wasn't designed or built by committee - it's the product of your vision, so don't wuss out now. :)

    3) The one you show in this post does look monstrous, but the one posted by daws seems like it would be a better fit for your bike.
