ive just noticed there are 3 holes on the rear end pivot, where it meets the shock assembly, have they been drilled for adjust-ability reasons?

or they even holes? :wink:

I brought the bike off a friend, he said the tyre buzzed on the shock under full compression, so drilled new holes until it stopped! I'm going to get the wrong ones welded up and just maybe run a smaller tyre...

Lovely frames but very fragile, the clan went through back ends like butter bitd used to go on the lower stays...

I'm waiting to find out about a team spec thermoplastic with team spec boxxers and hand cut custom Michelin tyres last used on a world cup track about 10 years ago.....
