Is that the actual disc tab in place before welding? Just stuck on the inside of the dropout? If it is it looks terrible.

As for you saying there are no fun rigid disc brake bikes available now, you really haven't been looking hard enough. There's loads of them.

Ruining a classic frame for no good reason IMHO.
:-(


if that is what you see you dont understand what you are looking at.

no there are no clasic steel rigs around period with discs. (except handbuild tailor made rigs)

two good reasons; disc brake front and rear

With 26in wheels and a proper-length fork without a yawning chasm between tyre and crown? Show me :)

As I said in the Flickr comments, it's not like this is the last FRO in the universe. I don't know the owner but it wouldn't surprise me if he had another one stashed away himself. I'm for it.

I raise a cheer. If it means it's going to be ridden more often then then brilliant. Nothing worse than a period correct garage queen just sitting there. Dripping in CNC'd Pauls loveliness with white Porcs never being ridden because the paint might get chipped, the mechs will break and tyres will wear out destroying their "value".


I couldn't agree more :D
