I was going to ask about the Firm-tech brazeons (I remembered Magura saying they weren't available to third parties), but then I googled up the web page explaining everything:

http://groovycycleworks.blogspot.com/20 ... hrist.html

Are those Paragon dropouts?

Custom modular dropouts by Rody :wink: , don't need the paragon slider dropouts cause of the EBB (excentric bottom bracket)

The bike's geometry is a copy of my beloved '92 Yo Eddy in size ML, make that a 19" bike.... so not really small :wink:
Then there's me at 1.98 meters and 95 kilo's, also not really small :roll: :lol:
This geometry just suits me best for over 10 years now, doing pretty long alpine trips and some fast single tracks.
The rim brakes (magura's) have sh#t loads off braking power at a very low weight..no need for discs here. 8)
cheers Roy
