    Under normal operating conditions it basically will. We all know discs require higher forces. Your argument would make sense if disc and rim calipers were in the same location, but they're not - standard rotors (160mm) start around 230mm inbound from where the rim brake track would be.

    In any case, assuming you have the right end caps on your hub, you should take Litespeed up on their offer of a new frame. You're trying slap stuff together to get things to work when everything should work right out of the box.
    Well, it's common knowledge that braking force (force of friction) increases with increasing normal force.

    The equation is: force of friction = coefficient of friction x normal force.

    In real world settings, the coefficient of friction isn't constant. It changes with increasing normal force. So, braking force doesn't always increase linearly with increasing squeeze on the rotor.

    Amuwau, Litespeed is swapping out the frame, no queations asked. Great company to deal with.

    Modulation has more to do with how much pressure it takes to change the speed of the wheel. Generally stronger brakes modulate less well, but stop better.

    Adding cable travel could help modulation, but only because it decreases the friction of the cable in the housing.

    "Modulation" isn't brake power, it is the degree of fine control in its application.

    OP, why haven't you asked Litespeed why your frame isn't working with the hub? Their answer might be "because you used the wrong hub", but will at least tell you what the right hub is.


    Any possibility you have the hub put together wrong (axle ends flipped) or the rotor on upside down?

    Nope.
