It will be taking a similar route as my mountaincycle Moho
Depending what fits that I have or what turns up at the right price
Probably end up with a brake therapy disc adapter on the back too

how much are the brake therapy ones?
surely youd be better off buying a frame for salvage?

finding the disc brake adapter that goes on these FSRs is not easy, i've only seen 2 of them one got sold on here.

the other i saw on a rockhopper FSR on ebay which i was bidding on only for it to end early -_-'



can you tell i'm also looking for one lol

my brake therapy ended up at about £126 after import duty and post office handling charges
works a treat though :)

i had a nosey at the FAQ on specializeds website, someone asked if there was an adapter made, they recommend Brake Therapy too

just bought some 120mm Marzocchi MX Pro LOs from ebay to go on it,
strangely enough the same fork as on my Moho, but with different decals

Khane has done a little digging around (Thanks)
here is a photo of how the frame looked before he bought it
i am hoping mine will be a little nicer once completed, time will tell
also he found a pic of the disc mount that was available years ago, now there's none to be found anywhere
if anyone has the ability to produce some please get in touch
the frame has the hole near the dropout already for the mount to bolt to

Ooooh good call, i've sent an enquiring email to my local spec dealer who are currently in the process of moving, to see if they unearthed any in the stock room.
