If you look, it's a CR hanger. So, it's setup to to fit into a groove on the CR swinger. The caveat is that the rotor hub I machined does not give enough room on the interior of the XL swinger to make that design work. That's why I'm retrofitting a stay option on a swinger that wasn't originally designed for a stay.

It's difficult to tell from the pic, but "F" is a connection to the upper shock mount. Depressing the rear brake also compresses the suspension, keeping weight further back on braking.

Doesn't change the fact that nothing in that pic will work with this wheel, rotor, carrier, caliper setup. That's also a dual caliper setup.

Split personality, I fake being smart
Every bike I've seen with caliper torque near axle has severe wheel 'chatter' under any hard braking. It works real well when just 'dragging' brake but hard braking just makes things jump around. Best way to do it is have a bearing in center and a parallelogram arm mounted to frame.
Back inthe day several dirt bikes had that set up and it worked real well on any surface. Should be able to find pictures of YZ250/490, Maico 490 or similar.
It definitely is a major advantage in my opinion, I have experience of the superior braking allowing me to almost keep up with a few professional riders for a lap or two ;D (on my Maico, the YZ490 was nice but only 4 gears when it needed 5)
Here's a test on 1981 maico, engine same as 82 but 82 had monoshock with Cortecosso shock which wan't very good (even though Ferrari use them)
