The 2 m10 holes are to attach a plate to, which then you would attach the caliper plate. Alledgedly you can only get CAD drawings which show an IS type fitting.
I've already pm'ed somebody on here to try and get hold of the drawings to give to BETD so they can machine one for me. Ive got a post mount rear caliper and wanted to use that, if not I'll have to swap it for an IS or buy another caliper.

People moan that these frames break easily, poppycock! I've had my b-17 baby for a good while now and mine hasn't broke (yet!).


in that case , i'll make my own mount when i need it :wink:

cheers fella :D

Had one of these..... Out of the box it had STX-RC rear mech, v-brakes and cranks, no disc ready hubs, but was a cracking introduction to DH I tell you. Rear shock was Shockworks oil/coil with Rebound and Compression adjustments, no air!
Oh and they were notorious for cracking when ridden hard ;)

if you ever spot anything up this end of the woods thats pick-up only then give me a shout :wink:

i went down the bings today for 20 mins and found out the rear shock is a little weak for my weight so i'll be buying a pump for the manitou slr one i had on it :D

Reminds me of my old one.

couple of things to note though. The frames are prone to cracking. Mine went round the headtube and also the swingarm.
Also, those shocks were rubbish. I went through a stage of blowing them. 4 in a year IIRC.
