Cool. I can easily flip it over.

Can you guess what the brace is made from? If you get it right there's a bonus question. Free biscuits for the winner!

Yep its part of a Hope disk brake., well done! :D

But not a wavvy type. So the bonus question is 'what type of hope disk brake' ????

:D :D :D :D :D

Got the frame back from Shand Cycles today! :)

I had sent my disk tab and brace but I buried it in bubble wrap around the headtube. Steven didn't unpack the headtube as he was working on the other end of the frame so he must have assumed I didn't end the tab! (doh :roll: ). He went ahead and used one of his own tabs and a fabricated a piece of tubing for the brace at no extra cost. I must say I am delighted with the quality and finish of his work. I'll keep my self-fabricated tab for another frame at some point in the future.

Here's a few piccy's!

I whole heartedly recommend Shand Cycles to anyone wanting to have a frame repaired or modified.

Not really. I had a few dents filled with brass and the canti mounts tapped out too. I've jut taken some better pics so I'll replace the photos above shortly.

Who bought my disk tab off me, the one I made myself before I had the frame modified?

I cant remember who it was and I lost the messages from my outbox. Hoping I might be able to buy it back if its still around.......
