Well. I would just coldest the stays and weld on mech hanger and disc tab. Og maybe bolt on mech hanger a la Hunters dropouts.
So keep the fore/aft adjustability? Makes it simpler for sure. I was also thinking a brace/bridge on the NDS side for disc braking forces. Not sure if needed, but I've seen it done.
Like this maybe:
I fucking love Rick Hunter. He is mad brill
I did it the same way as @Batt- the only issue I found is that the hanger insert moves the mech about 5mm outboard so it takes some extra fiddling to index for the granny gear.
Also it's a complete pain in the arse to change a tube. Unlike Batt's I use SKS front mudguard stays for the rear guard, so they can pop out without having to undo the bolts.
Yes, when I used to commute with mudguards on this bike it was a total arseache.
I'm leaning towards the most simple solution (or one of), which is to weld on a hanger like this if I can find one. Different dropout but you get the idea:
Yes do that
I have a pair of those dropouts that Hulsroy made.. they’re pristine as I never used them.
Yours for postage (from dk) if you want?
All yours (cc. @Simba )
I don't think they'll be quite right for my needs.
Allright. We have a deal here.
I should probably make a CP thread for this, but I just wanted to share something. There's a thread on here called "anyone know anything about disc brakes?" and the answer in my case is "fuck no".
I just learned that rear disc (road) spacing is 135mm. Who knew?
Could be 142 too... everyone has an idea these days!
Picked up a v4 raw pompino yesterday. Plan is to race it sscx. Have to change a few things, such as gearing (planning on 38/18) maybe brakes (unbranded v brakes atm) and tyres. Does anyone know of any 24h 120 OLD rear hubs if I wanted to build up a set of tub wheels for it?
I am looking for a geometry chart for a Pomp V4, but can’t find it. (Google is normally my friend, but not in this case...)
Does anyone have one at hand or know where to find it? (It has to be V4)
24h 120 OLD
