    Hi i'm currently building a new rim and want to add a dual clutch with bite point adjustment.

    I found this picture of a board from Martin Asher, but need some help to "reverse engineer" this, since this should be that hard to make yourself.

    It's basically for lighting starts.

    A dual clutch system ( like in F1) enables you to make the perfect start over and over again. It's explained in the video below
