Thanks, that makes sense now, I'll have another look at the dropouts and see if it can be "fettled".

I have never had a problem with v brakes, they will always shoot you over the bars if you have to, you can feather them, they are lighter tahn disc. Which begs the question why have disc if your not riding in mud all the time
