    Resurrection-oh Car!os!!!

    I didn't know how else to contact you, and tracked you down here.
    Anyhoo, I'm rebuilding the old hardtail I used back in the day('95) when Kenny, Ray, and myself used to ride alla time. The problem I can't seem to work around is that the bike doesn't have a braze-on that's compatible with v-brakes. If you want to see a pic, pm me your email and I'll send a pic. Let me know if you have any remedies..

    Nevermind, the guys @ Bikeworld on Blanco had a clamp-on adapter ($5) that worked perfectly. Thanks!!

    bill c.....DUDE!!!

    the guys at Blanco BW are quality fornicators....they'll get you what you need.
    It’s impossible to rate welding/brazing quality by looking at a finished frame joint, even an unpainted one. Files, sandblasting, and a good paint job can take care of that. Such a joint will look stellar unpainted, but won’t last. Yet people all the time look at frames and say, “Nice welding/brazing…” The point isn’t to make you paranoid, just to stop saying things like, “That’s nice welding/brazing,” when you see a painted/unpainted frame. -- Grant Petersen
