Questions

Hello, I have a 26 inch jitse varial 1085 with rear hydraulic rim brakes. I am looking for a brake up grade, to be able to brake using 1 finger for the rear. Is a v brake conversion an option here ? craig

Hi Craig! Hydraulic rim brakes are the standard brake that people use for trials as they allow single finger braking. If you're not able to achieve that with yours, it may be worth double checking the brake setup, or upgrading your brake pads.
If you have the standard pads that came on the Varial, they're a fairly hard compound (designed more for durability than performance), so upgrading those would make a big difference to the bite and hold of your brake. Something like the Tr1al HS33 pads would be a good choice if you have a smooth rear rim.
If you've tried upgraded pads and aren't happy with the results, treating the rim can help improve performance. Most riders you'll see will have a grind on their rear rim, or will use something like Racing Line Tar. Tar is a soft, sticky material, so if you apply a little (if you use too much it can stick your pads to your rims!) it effectively helps the pads grip the rim better.
Grinding your rim is done by using an angle grinder to rough up the surface of the rim. We have a video guide available here, or alternatively we have a video featuring Ali Clarkson detailing the process more here.
The only thing to note with grinding your rim is that different pads work well with grinds compared to smooth rims. The Tr1al HS33 pads work best on a smooth rim or a light grind, but for anything more you'll be better off investigating the pads we have available from brands like Heatsink, Jitsie or TNN Engineering.
Hopefully this helps, but feel free to ask if you have any more questions!
