So, new frame - hoping to fit most of my existing parts - thought I'd just test-fit the rear brake before taking the headset off the old frame...
Brake problem by oxym0r0n, on Flickr[/img]
It doesn't fit!
So - will I die if I file away a bit of the dropout for the caliper to fit (It's a NOS Salsa El-Mariachi with Magura Marta)
New frame - not really an option as I chose this specifically due to geometry, component compatibility(!),swingers etc.
New brakes not really an option, as I have another set of Marta's and like to share pads, bleed kit etc.
I've already taken apart my old 26" wheel to be built into a 29" and bought a few finishing components...
Thoughts (mainly on filing away a bit of the dropout?)
