that would be superb if you could?

i've emailed the seller of that M700 the other day? but he hasn't replied?? I've scoured Google etc and i can't find any similar ones for sale?

Hence my question about the A2Z one? It does look like it would fit ok? but i'd like to be sure 1st?

cheers

Greig.

yep that was the same adapter on that m700 on ebay, the seller actually emailed me back to say he'd taken it off an old Gary Fisher. but he said he had to drill the M700 frame in order to clamp it on.

I'm still curious about this A2Z one, and i might just buy one and see if it fits? if not i'll send it back? either that or just run a disc on the front only??

cheers for the help guys

pah, run v-brakes on the rear?!??>?!?!>?! no.

alternative is to get some aluminium alloy plate and make you own adatper.

hopefully after this weekend I will post photos of my DIY proflex adapter which is far more complex in 3-D than that one so it may give you some idea.

that sounds interesting about the adapter you're having made???

i've got it set up with Avid V brakes and i have a brake booster on the rear as well.

But i still like the idea of adding discs?? :D

I'll post some pics of the bike over the weekend.

cheers
