Original posters frame has already had torch work done and owned from new, and the one above has lost none of its appeal either unlike it would if you put 100mm+ fork on it, or heaven forbid turned it into a 1x10 with triple clamp forks or even castrated it completely and turned it into a single speed :facepalm: admittedly all of those could easily be undone.
liking the Pro-Stop and keeping the canti and the back idea as well
Thank you all for your time and opinions I truly appreciate it. Its a hard decision for sure, much easier if it was someone else's bike I was watching get built or something I could easily undo! The video above is the one I saw and if you didn't know anything about the frame it looks like a pretty sweet ride that was born with discs..really nice job. i wouldn't be able to bring myself to hacking off the brake bosses so what is the point then right?
I think I may just leave it as is and add back the correct parts I bought with it. I seriously need a nice crankset though...would love a set of bullseyes but they seem more rare than the actual mythical Yeti beast himself these days.
Part of my problem is if I went discs I couldn't use some really cool parts I was so psyched to get back in the day, Pauls levers, the pipe dream brakes, bullseye hubs...no, I think I have made up my mind. I will keep it as is and try to find a nice crank set for it.
thank you all for bearing with my insanity. you are all awesome!
anyone have a bullseye crank\bottom bracket for sale?
