Unfortunately I realised when building it up that's the frame is intended for V's, not cantis, so a slight DIY 'fix' with an alloy ferrule to get it functional.

It was really a canti-type frame I wanted, so I will probably (very reluctantly) let this one go :(

....and I'd ordered a set of '94 decals :roll: ...I believe this frame to be a '96 ...anyone confirm for me?

Cheers :)

The rear cable stop indicates 96 onwards but not 100%.. Weld looks like it may have been added later ? .. Sure you will sell no problem though 8)

It does look like its been added doesn't it.... It'd be shame to let that one go. V brakes are better anyway! ;-)
