What mods have been done to allow the brake line to be fixed across the top tube?
Shame the rear brake boss and canti brake stop were not removed would have been a no brainer (to buy)

It is virtually impossible to drill out the lugs to run a closed system as the lugs are so close to the frame. Taking the lugs off and replacing was too much £. Therefore I decided to run mechanical discs (Avid BB's), with a closed Gore cabling. They are still fitted to the frame. You could buy with brake already fitted to frame + the front brake if you wanted?
Bosses were left on for versatility, in hind sight I probably should have removed them.
