None of those Lobos have the chainstay gubbins for the Hope caliper strut.

I quite like the one with the IS mount! Did you do that yourself?

For my rigid project, I will use a rigid alloy frame for the rear...

And yes, on my Lobo the IS mount is not original, it's the first owner who did it.
I have a second end with this brake mount solding on it, for the sale.
And I have an original hope system for my alloy frame restauration...

Only bit of spare rear end is of the lobo that ive have pictured

The rear ends hardly come up for sale and the front ends even less

One sold on here (front ) for £80 this weekend

Strange build that Alu Lobo, it has the STS lower stays/swingarm and some pretty funky looking bolts holding it together down there.

By accident or previous owner 'design'? The Alu Lobo arm weighs a ton though so it might be for weight saving, I had also read people who snapped their carbon triangle were given a Alu front end by GT.

Triangle has very nice welds though, I have two and one looks like yours but the other was deffo welded on a Friday afternoon.

But I hesitate between selling this frame (I'm also interested by an exchange with a LTS thermoplastic frame), or continuing the project...
