Cheers :D

The frame was built as a disc frame back in '99. I have owned the frame from new and had the original Formula mount replaced with an IS mount a few years ago. The frame has been used with no Ill effect on the drop out. I will not be using this bike hard and will be running a small rotor, so no problem of anything going west!!!

This is how I first built the bike back in 2000ish, with Formula brakes.

They are going on the bike, not sure if I'm going for a 1x8 or 3x8 yet though.

Go 1x8 with a nice bash (for visual purposes innit) and that silver mech with a few other silver touches.
Or if the black mech - get as much black as you can on there.
