A few weeks back I had a break in and lost around 1000 pounds worth of modern mtb's. They also stole my new hope c2 brakes AND the A2Z adaptor I'd bought off here and spent hours cutting up to fit my cannondale drop outs. Having had to splash out on yet another set of hopes I really don't want to spend 30 quid on a new bracket on eBay. Does anyone have one lying around then could sell me for slightly less than 30? Or can anyone in London weld disc mounts to my Alu frame?

Go for another bracket...

If it is welded, whoever does it will need to source parts, invest in disc tab jig, strip paint, prep frame, prep tab, prep reinforcement, weld, clean up, invoice. And that's without the (possible) need to re-heat treat the frame (solution heat, quench, realign, age...).

It's a PITA, but anyone competent enough (and with enough liability insurance) to weld something safety critical, such as a disc tab, to a Cannondale not designed for one is going to charge a whole lot more than £30 for that.

All the best,
