Those drop outs look brilliant. I hope we can replicate that kind of quality!

Here's the disc tab I did for my eldest's GT i also did the discs themselves out of stainless, more parts can be seen on my website www.3gecomponents.com all these were laser cut but the adaptors will be water jet cut, then milled to provide the correct offset :wink:

Thanks, but truth be told I was probably at my desk surfing the net while they were being cut. :wink:

Did them for a friend for his prototype jackshaft DH bike. It eventually morphed into Dark Cycles in Vancouver.

Just resurrecting this to see if anyone is genuinely up for making some IS disc tabs for the AMP frames. I'm currently planning my next build and have a lovely amp frame and a lovely set of Hope disc brakes, but without a disc adaptor for the forks and frame, never the twain shall meet.

Cheers

Ian

Looks lonely without a disc mount. I think mine feels the same :(

Do let us know how you get on. The mount I bought is not is sadly, but is a fine piece of work, with machining so it fits around the rounded existing mounts perfectly.

Hi guys,
I'm in the process of rebuilding my 95 Litespeed Obed FS which has an AMP B3 rear. I'm looking to put an IS mount on the rear. Does anyone have the drawings for the adaptor they could send to me, that i can take to a fabricator?

Hi Guys,

Here's what I'm planning on making, I'll still need to cost them. They made from alluminium and include the correct offsets so no spacers are required to get the correct spacing for ISO mount calipers. Dimension are all correct, I contacted Brion at AMP who kindly sent over the original drawings. I can also offer replacement discs for AMP mountings.

John
