yet this atx 1,still no v mounts, but also doesnt have the disc mounts above the wheel clamp. It does have some 'holes' on the lower triangle though. Could these be mounting holes as mine has these. The first bike doesnt

The early atx's had disc mounts on the chain stay and hope made a caliper to fit. I forget the number of the caliper.

The later ones had a convential I.S disc mount on the seat stay.

That's the frame I sold you have a picture of.

you'd need a ti-glide or bulb hub with a 130mm (roadbike) axle and a 150mm disc to make it work 8)

gonna be cheaper to find out which hope caliper fits, anyone know where i could find out which one it is? Just bought a set of wheels for it last week, sunn single track disc only rims so a bit stuck. Even if i got a similar rim that would work with magura rim brakes im not sure they would fit coz the tyre is huge
