    For now we're running some other forks, we'll be making our own at some point. But I agree, I really just don't like disc brakes and the mounting would ruin the look of the bike.

    How many of these frames are you sittin' on, Rev? The last frame i bought isn't gonna work for me; I need to sell off some frames/parts (gotta keep the wife happy) to make some room and scare up some cash. Essentially, this is the frame I'm looking for, but it might be a minute before I can actually grab one...

    Just pokin' my nose in here for a second. Functionality has a beauty of it's own. I personally had a much easier time making those early "ugly" center-pull cantis work right than the side-pull noodle things that are standard now. :| On the other hand, the single mount side-pull Weinmann against chrome I just stuck on my 3-spd still comes on smoothly but when squeezed hard can lock-slide or "go unicycle". :mrgreen: Love what you're doing with this product, any way, although if I were to buy one I might have to take a grinder to those rear dropouts. :p 8)

    i find v-brakes to be about 50 times easier to set-up than center-pull cantis. YMMV, but i don't think i'll go back to cantis again, if i can help it. (My one bike has a center-pull cantilever front brake, though.)

    sorry to resurrect a loooong dead thread, but Rev106, I gotta ask: When are you going to tell RRB folks about the Article 2?

    [​IMG] That thing is the heat.....

    I'm thinking I might grab one of your frames soon. I shouldn't; too many bikes. But, the things are too tempting... Do you still have frames available? Any pricing differences between the Article 1 and 2?

    regards,

    oh my, I guess I never kept up on this I'm sorry about that. Well we have 3 frames now. We make about 10 a year as we have to work around our real job and all that to make this happen.
