Love the frame, hate the discs but if works for you that's all that matters.


I know the discs aren't to most peoples tastes, I just prefer them in the mud to rim brakes especially on steep technical stuff.

Looks purposeful but needs a black post!

And I like your style with cable retention - I did same thing to my road hack this week! Also, that saddle looks comfy.

Yeah I know about the post, had hoped to swap it with the black one thats on my 94 AA but it turns out they are both different sizes strangely. So for the time being its staying silver As I'll need to buy a new post as the is the only frame I own with a 27.0 post.

I had thought about drilling out the rear cable stops to take the rear hose but decided against it in case I want to go back to rim brakes again in the future. I don't care about how my bike looks really so black tape and cable ties did the job nicely

The saddle is just an old specialized BG one I had kicking round the shed, does the job
