Install hand brakes


I have an old model (CCM37) and i want to know if it's possible to install hand brakes easily without using soldering ?

Thanks !



sure is easy, get Road Racer brakes, no "soldering" ??? or welding required

Thanks GT



...just to be sure, on my bike there is no hole for a screw in font or rear where usuallly you screw this kind of brakes.

So i figure these brakes above can be install in another way ? 

If so where can i find those brakes ?


Thanks !



JF, Greg (GTFlyte) has a set for sale, the set in the picture!!!

    These are the Philco type add-on brakes. Their purpose is to be added to any bike that can take side-rim brakes. You clamp them onto the fork blades (for the front mount models, which these seem to be) and then you have rim brakes for that wheel. Pretty cool if you want add rim brakes that are period correct for a 1930s-40s bike.


Thanks Joe great NOS brakes

Those look wicked, GT. Glad they're getting used. I imagine you changed the petrified pads?

Nycet3 do you sell parts ? (do you have this brakes, i just need th rear brake (or front if no rear)

If yes how can i contact you ?




Jfmagnet, send me a message.

You guys know you can just go out and buy drum brakes, some with speeds, that are made by sturmy archer. I have a set and they work like a charm.

How come CCM bicycles have serial numbers, and trycycles don't?

Because who would want to steal a kid's tricycle?


Serial numbers identify otherwise identical individual units with many, obvious uses. Serial numbers are a deterrent against theft and counterfeit products, as they can be recorded, and stolen or otherwise irregular goods can be identified. Banknotes and other transferable documents of value bear serial numbers to assist in preventing counterfeiting and tracing stolen ones.
