Buzzing to have found a pair of Scott Mathauser pads for the front brake.

Now they will all match. I needed the threaded type too :roll:

Did you buy yours directly from Tom T? I got mine from him with no paint as well. CycleArt was the company that did the original art for Brave and they were right up the street from me so I had them do the paint. I built it with full XTR build but I have decided to build it up with more colorful parts. Nuke proof wheels, cook cranks, ringle, precision billet etc.
The best thing about our paint jobs is if we ever get a chip all we need is a little black touch up and nobody will ever know.

I finally got round to cabling up the Brave earlier tonight.

All the cables i used are NOS Suntour 8)

This is just a quick phone camera piccy until i can find time to take it outdoors and take some proper ones..

The brakes are a little time consuming to adjust but got there in the end.

Hope this build as others approval :!:

Wow, that's great! What brakes are you running? They don't look familiar at all.

The brakes are Marinovative Decelerators. They came out around 89-90.

Bizzarre set up but they certainly grab hold of the rims :D
