I have noticed pictures of a few Trimble frames with rear disc brakes. Are these new frames or did someone make their own adapter?

FSP had custom machined about 10 adaptors for original Trimbles about 5 or so years ago, before starting Moonhead Components, and sold them through MTBR...possible some of those you have seen pictured on the net were of his work.

cheers,

Guys,

You'd probably be better off if Pete just sent the Solidworks file, then you could have a local CNC company run a batch of them.

If y'all can't get-r-done, let me know...
