Brake device

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #5913387.

A bicycle brake device is disclosed for coupling onto either front or rear forks of a bicycle. The brake device is preferably has a pair of brake arms which are pivotally coupled to either the front or rear forks by a pair of mounting members. The mounting members are design to be installed on conventional mounting posts which can be attached to either a brake arch or directly to the fork. The brake arms have their pivot pins spaced upwardly and outwardly from the mounting posts brake arch or the fork to improve the braking force. Also, in a parallel push type of brake device, the position of the pivot pins increases the horizontal dimension of the linkage to reduce wobbling.
