So... here it is... this one needs some work...

Someone apparently doesn't like cantilever brakes... and also isn't very handy :facepalm:

First step is to remove that cable stop :D

This frame is suspension corrected for a Judy XC but it will be getting a Mag 21... Why? why not 8)

More pics to come... I added in a pic of the blue parts that will be going on it..

Oh... and the frame will be painted Orange 8)

Thx! Yup, this one will be my wacky colour build... I'll try to keep it tasteful but please let me know if I go too overboard on it =)

Orange and blue wouldn't be my first choice (with the exception of the Gulf Racing combination) so I am intrigued to see how this pans out.

Well... Yes, but whether I cut it off or hear it up I'm still going to have to file off the excess brass left behind. I would rather not hear it up any more than it already has been and just cut then file.

But tell me if I'm missing something here??

clean off the paint and see what colour the "weld" is,,if it is brass,then it was fillet brazed on,better to cut it off..If it is silver,,then silver soldered on,heat it up with a propane torch and it should fall off,,solder melts at a pretty low heat,wont hurt the frame.It's made to melt before the copper and brass it's used on.
I have used solder to fix chain suck on a frame a few times..
But please,,if you are uncomfortable at all,,please find a friendly neighbourhood frame builder,,I don't want anyone mad at me.!.

True, if it is solder even a lighter or match will melt it off =) I will investigate

I Could stick with JUST blue components... get a blue CK headset, and maybe silver brakes??
