BRAKES SPECIALLY ADAPTED FOR CYCLES { (arrangements in cycles for adjusting wheel-braking force to meet varying vehicular or ground-surface conditions B60T 8/00) }
Definition statement
This subclass/group covers:

Brakes and their actuating mechanisms peculiar to their use on bicycles and motorcycle type vehicles.

References relevant to classification in this subclass
This subclass/group does not cover:
Brakes having wider applicability and not specially adapted for cycles
Brake control systems having wider applicability and not specially adapted for cycles
Informative references
Attention is drawn to the following places, which may be of interest for search:
Cycle frame parts shaped for attaching brake members
Arrangements in cycles for adjusting wheel-braking force to meet varying vehicular or ground-surface conditions
Special rules of classification within this subclass

Unless otherwise stated, classification should be made in the most appropriate place(s). Multiple classification should be given if appropriate.

Brakes { (back-pedalling brakes B62L 5/00) } ; Arrangements thereof
Definition statement
This subclass/group covers:

This is the head group where classification is given if none of the sub groups are relevant as such and includes in particular arrangements of disc brakes or drum brakes.

References relevant to classification in this group
This subclass/group does not cover:
Back-pedalling brakes
Informative references
Attention is drawn to the following places, which may be of interest for search:
Brakes with substantially-radial braking surfaces pressed together in axial direction, e.g. disc brakes.
Brakes with outwardly-movable braking members co-operating with the inner surface of a drum or the like
Brake-actuating mechanisms { (for back-pedalling brakes B62L 5/00) } ; Arrangements thereof
References relevant to classification in this group
This subclass/group does not cover:
