Fantastic looking bike!

Do you still have your spare rear brake part? I've got the same problem as you had... (see http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... highlight= )

no rear brake part i am afraid , although I could get one as I know someone who is going to machine one for its RTS .
I like my bodge with a canti brake arm :wink:

unfortunately , the rear hub is dead , so I cant ride the bike a lot .
It stayed in france along with the Yeti for more relaxed duties .

Was reading an MBUK from April 1994 last night and was shocked to see that the new price of an RTS was £2,999.00....!

they were expensive . When I saw one in a mag , I raced to my lbs and told him i wanted one , it was a RTS 1 .
two months later he gets me one , but it is RTS 2 . I asked him why and he simply said that my dad had gone round and as he was paying for it , he decided a RTS 2 was good enough . :oops: :lol:

I seem to remember the retail price of my RTS-2 was about £1850

Any chance you could post a pic of how you've bodged the rear brake? Sounds like it might be the simplest solution!
