Hello all,

Decided to keep an ALAN frame that is perfect for fixed or SS as it has no braze on's at all and make it geared.

Problem is it's so perfect there isnt even a braze on on the drive side chain stay for the gear cable to fit into - any one any idea on how to get around that?

Cheers

There exist those clamp on pieces that you can use. I would try eBay or maybe Mario De Fietsenmaker or CampyOldy has them.

Sure it's not a track frame? In which case don't.

Even the first generation ALAN's had a ''under-the-bracket'' gear cable fitting as far as I know.
