Can anyone explain why the brake hanger would have been cut off the brace on the Manitou 2s I have?
How would the brakes have been fitted??!!

I can't believe I have only just noticed! :shock:

Thanks Chris, that cleared that one up quickly then!

Can't believe how stupid I am at the moment. I guess five and a half months of no sleep (thanks to sprog #2) is starting to show!
