looking good dude. is that a brace a cross both canti mounts?

It is yes
I thought i would stiffen the rear end because its titanium,i thought the left side seat stay might flex too much under braking,from the frame adaptor torque arm thingy.
There is a frame boss one the bottom of the mono stay,i imagined that just the two fixings [the bosses]werent enough to stiffen it completely and a three point fixing was best for that job.It was a bugger to find a brace long enough to reach the stay boss.Im happy that that area is stiff enough for disc brakes.
