Looks like those brakes are on the trailing edge of the fork. I'm wonder where the cable pulls from? Maybe like the old "Potts Mod" from BMX, the cable runs through the steerer tube.

looks like a cross between 2 mtb brakes... either way with the leverage removed ... would be cool if they worked though ... what does the storck leaf srping brake patent look like to compare ?

The brakes are more built into the fork and yes the cable goes up through the steering tube:

Thanks for posting that, hadnt seen it.

However, Storck seems a little too worried about grams of weight and not grams of drag. While the brake arms appear to be non-existant, the brake cable is very existant.

x2 - The cable seems to be pulling at an angle that's only 15 degrees or so out of line with the pivot - can't see you getting much force out of that (and it'll get even worse as the brakes get tighter)

I ran a home made setup like fig.9 on my BMX flatland bike in 92, brakes on the front of the fork, straddle cable running angled back a bit into the base of the fork crown, cable with no outer straight up to the stem.

braked perfect and ran very smooth. Bit of a pain getting at any cable for adjustment though
