I don't thimk we are talking about releasing centipetal or centrifugal forces here. The caliper is fixed to the fork, it will, when the front brake is applied try to move the fork (equal and opposite) around the direction of rotaion of the disc - a rotary motion. Not up and down.

A CSE in General Science will only take me so far in life (so apologies if I am miles off course here). Brakes change kinetic energy to heat energy. When applying the front brake, the forks being attached to the head yoke, stop the whole forks rotating forward about the front wheel axle. This is lik...
As I understand it, according to Newton's third law (equal and opposite reaction), applying the brake wiil attempt to move the caliper in the direction of rotation of the disc...not up and down.
