Reverb Stealth drilling
I bought a Reverb but had a stealth delivered instead, shop doesn’t have any more in stock. So would you drill a hole in a steel frame and if so where? My thoughts are either in the BB shell or where a bottle mount would go on the seat tube. Or I could take the safe option and just return if for a refund.
It’s a Stanton slackline 631 btw.Posted 3 years agotimmysSubscriber

Out of interest was the shop Planet-X/On-one? (waves at Brant)
I’m expecting delivery today of a Reverb from them that was described as a 150mm drop non-stealth which I’m not sure exists, so am kinda expecting a stealth to turn up. Mines for a Slackline too funnily enough, though won’t be getting the drill out if it is a stealth!

Have you seen this?
If I was consider doing similar (which I’m not), I think I’d opt for drilling the headtube (based on no engineering know-how at all).NorthwindSubscriber
Yeah, if anyone’s ended up with a Stealth at On One prices perhaps I could take that off your hands 😉
Re drilling, only thing to do is speak to Stanton. I’m going to drill my own frame after getting a pretty reasonable “We’ve never tried it, we won’t recommend it, but it’s not definitely stupid so here’s the best way to do it, and good luck” from the manufacturersPosted 3 years agohexhamstuMember
I asked transition about drilling my covert, they said it should be fine. But obviously if it broke at the hole I wouldn’t be eligible for crash replacement. Otherwise it would be fine.
It is very likely that drilling a hole for a Reverb will not cause any future issues, however if something did arise from doing this I can’t promise that it could be covered under warranty. But as always, we would do our best to help you out.
