My plan B was brake therapy, £126! So even £70 would have been a bargain ;)

I saw that too
But here lies the difference between value and cost
I got it for £31 a real bargain
That potentially saved me £95, even at £70 I'd have been £56 better off

Hi MountainLoz,
Any chance you could post some pics of - or answer some questions on - where the chainstay mounts to the frame?

My 99 elite has got a 62mm long bolt with an 18mm allen key head - only one washer (31mm wide with 14mm hole) - and an allen bolt that screws into the other end of the long main bolt.

So I'm pretty sure I'm missing a washer - but is the bolt in the other side right, or am I missing something there too?

Don't suppose you know of a source for new bearing for these chainstays?

Cheers

i have no idea where to get bearings, i've not looked into it yet, i think my first stop would be somewhere like JE James, they seem to do a lot with specialized

those of you who are following this build may have spotted a BB in there.....
