  1. @JoshLeech or @euanbeaden, both on Instagram/Facebook and great engineers.
  2. This is the hex I had josh weld a mount and inner brace plus carbon wrapped it. Still got the frame so I'll get some more closer pictures. It worked great for couple of years plus I dont think it ever cracked.
  3. If you want a disc brake on the rear try and get in touch with Josh Leech.
  4. That's pretty close, instead of those plastic washers I use an aluminium washer from a hope or any single speed kit that fits on a hub freewheel. Stronger then those plastic ones.
  5. Here's my Instagram Mega Mix video with a series of my favourite and some unseen footage. Enjoy!
  6. Still looks pretty close. If you took the the none drive side washer out and put it in the drive side with the other washers it should give you even more clearance. Or get a metal/aluminium washer the same thickness as all three (because those plastic ones can be rubbish to tighten further then you want. Try some single speed washers off a freewheel like this. That's what I run, and you can tighten it as much as possible
  7. In the past I've taken a Hope rear sprocket spacer from a hope free wheel that you get with a new hub, added that instead of the plastic spacers that come with Shimano bb. Only because they crush quite easily. Plus as the Dave + Ali have said as well, I've also added the spacer on the crank axle to help. But from looking at your cranks now I wouldn't of filed the tabs for the bolts, only because they maybe more weak now and your chain may rub on the bolts holding your bashguard.
  8. I rode with these brakes earlier this year too see what the bite was like as there just 2 piston. I'm back on Zee's now as I like a bit more hold. What I can suggest is too buy some EBC red pads too fit and give more hold, these https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ebc-Shimano-Deore-Hydraulic-525-Disc-Brake-Pad-Red-Bike-Cycling-/122617527711?epid=0&hash=item1c8c92fd9f%3Ag%3A-vwAAOSw7ChZeKbQ&_trkparms=pageci%3A979165f3-93c8-11e7-a73f-74dbd1805fb6%7Cparentrq%3A5c53a96215e0ace037faaa3dfffa19b6%7Ciid%3A3Also what size rotors do you run? If your running 203mm, a lot of people break calipers because of the less strength in standard brake adaptors. If you Get one of these It will take the strain off https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B073VR6J79/ref=mp_s_a_1_22?ie=UTF8&qid=1504787740&sr=8-22&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=brake+adapter+203mm+hayes&dpPl=1&dpID=417uGY%2BLmsL&ref=plSrch. One last thing, too stop the pads rocking I tapped out the holes where the axle pin for the pads go and fitted one of these too stop the pads from rocking, this https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shimano-XT-M785-Pad-Axle-and-Snap-Ring-Pad-Holder-Pin-Screw-for-XT-Saint-/191710530976?hash=item2ca2d68da0%3Ag%3Ao0UAAOSwRH5XLF2m&_trkparms=pageci%3Aad69efdf-93c9-11e7-8eb6-74dbd18069e7%7Cparentrq%3A5c5ac65315e0abc0305dec67fff7c132%7Ciid%3A1
  9. Ditto, think I still got some pairs
  10. Think I got a pace boxed stem lying about. I'll try dig it out plus some azonic bars.
  11. I think Ben prefers to run that setup to have less sensitive braking. I rode with him a few weeks back in Bristol and he said he didn't mind the setup but when I had a go on his bike I preferred more locking power on the rear brake compared to his being less. 4piston calipers will always give you a better lock. But I also went back too 2piston on a cheap pair of Shimano deore brakes myself. Only thing I did was make the setup on them as best as I could. Taped out the pin holder for the pads so I could put a threaded one in to stop the rocking of the pads and fit Red EBC pads. There was more sensitive braking on the front brake as it's on the back of the fork which was great and perfect but you could feel the difference compared too the rear as there's not so much. As long as you get a FAT rear brake adapter just incase you snap a Caliper while running large rotors, 203mm magura or Shimano one, and pads of your choice (mine have always been EBC off eBay) then it will all work.
  12. No problem, also with many magura calipers they don't come with this threaded pad pin to stop the pads rocking. http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/191710530976?_mwBanner=1 this will fit magura as well as the standard Shimano calipers.
  13. Magura EBC Red or magura Trialtech pads are a good choice of brake pads for extra bite. Also if you go too a 203mm rotor, it would be best to upgrade the rear brake adaptor to a much fatter one to take the strain off the bite and flex. It because a lot of people have broken there calipers from upgrading too larger rotors. This type will help https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B073VR6J79/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1502361194&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=Hayes+203mm+rear+adapter&dpPl=1&dpID=417uGY%2BLmsL&ref=plSrch
  14. Similar geo to my Marino, would like to see more pictures in colour.
