Thanks everybody, but you need to congratulate Chris Herting for his work first and Ameybrook for being the first to initiate such a project :D
I'm only a copy :lol:

For the size, it's a 14". Julia Furtado's was 16". Chris has never seen such a small FRO and I think it was around a 94-95 frame. We had a problem with Chris with the rear cable stop.

On this frame the original cable stop was a big steel plate with a big hole in it. Aesthetic but we prefer to remove it for a classic one : it's working better and it's more in the spirit of the C26
