Here's another outlier. This '42 CCM has a '50 AB hub. The bike weighs at least 50 lbs and I'm 235 lbs. This single, rear, cabled drum brake performs like I've got a pair of well-setup XT canti's ....

Gotta like a smooth FW.
I think the dyno gets adjusted to a point where, before cinching it up you have a little wiggle and after tightening, you can just smell a little play.
