Did you have the cable stops powder coated when the frame was done?


Yes the frame smith did not dare to drill out the rivets. My wish was to have them brushed or black, but the powder cote firm did a really good job on the paint, so it passes my quality control :-)

Actually my initioal plan was to have made new cablestops with two stops for the f/r deraileur and fasterners for the rear brake.

But it turned out ok and in a Yeti kinda way - I think.

That disc conversion looks very tidy 8)
Why didn't you go for yellow forks?
I think whith yellow forks, white grips and white saddle it would look perfect.
