Yeti ProFRO Disc retrofit

(finished reslut see http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=156475)

This is the start of my next project bike. The frame and fork is off to my local bikesmith to weld disc mounts, cable guides and to remove brake cablehouse stoppers and bridge, and cantilever bosses.

The old beater...

...turning into a beauty ;-)

Some way to make a hot (off) rod. Mixing old and new technology. + I Have Been bilding bikes since the mid 80 '- all exept one with cantilevers and the "old school"setup.

This is going to be super nifty!
