I'm in the process of purchasing a nice 94 Kona Cindercone frame, I plan to have disc brake mounts fitted and get it resprayed, is there anybody else apart from Argos cycles that could do this? I would like somebody closer to home if possible.. I live in Dundee.
I believe the rear brake bosses can be unscrewed, is this correct? I'm not keen on having them totally removed as it may effect the strength on the seat stays, looking to run a 120mm fork on the bike, I'm assuming this wouldn't kill me or effect the handling too much?
Also.. It will be my only bike and I intend to use it for everything from trail centres to natural riding, I know it's steel and built to last etc, but just want some piece of mind it won't kill me on the first decent.. In short.. Will it break? I'm not heavy on bikes or bike parts. More of an XC Jeyboy poncy mincer* ; )
*- I'm not, I'm awesome and can even do skids, I tend to ride sat down though if that makes me worser!
