  • You can get Columbus chainstays which are specifically shaped for brazing on flat mount caliper mounts - SLF114OV450SX, SLF114OV450DX for the driveside.

    Alternatively, Paragon make dropouts with flat mount bits you can braze onto the NDS chainstay (DR2071 in steel for QR rear end - Ceeway sell them). Or you could use Paragon Polydrops with a flat mount insert.

    Or you can make it standard and then braze some flat mount caliper mounts directly onto and into the chainstay. It's a lot of work but I think it looks best. This was my recent effort:

  • That looks gorgeous, congratulations!
    I don't think it's something I can achieve in my first build though.
    I can't find the chainstay you recommend on the Columbus website here: https://www.columbustubi.com/eng/4_4_6.h­tm
    Where did you read that they are shaped for brazing on flat mount caliper?

    Following up on @PhilDAS's recommendation as well, I am guessing a dropout with brake mount is the easiest way to go. In that case, should I still look at flat mounts? Would it be weird to have flat mount brakes on the front fork and post mount on the rear dropouts?

    awkward with pads etc
