Lovely bike you have there matey :D

Got a set of avid codes to go on, but really been struggling to find a good quality mount.

So i've been looking into having one made. Its in its early stages but here is a mount i'm working on.

Just need a few interested LTS owners and a machine shop now :?

Probably not the greatest solution but I had an LTS and an A2Z adapter fit on the flat rear drop outs fine.

Hi there,

not been around much latley but I will include a link to my thread for both my LTS 1000's one is original spec, the other is a new build of a frame that had remained unbuilt until last janurary.

One of the frames I added an after market BETD disc addaptor and luckily the new build came with a disc specific rear end.

I know BETD do 2 versions of their disc addaptor, one for the later rear ends that came with 2 mounting holes and then a self fix option that requires you to drill into the rear drop out.

The link to my thread is :-

Hope this helps

Thanks for the post,

You have two really nice bikes there btw 8)

Do you know of anyone who has gone the self-fix route?

Cheers
