    Default Anyone offer 7005 chainstay mount disc dropouts?

    Im looking for something the same as the paragon low mount disc dropouts, but in 7005 aluminum. Paragon themselfs arent offering them in aluminum...

    The frame will be built to use the 'new' avid bb7 road SL 140mm disc.

    Kavik has some nice interchangeable dropouts in aluminum.

    Thanks guys.

    The 140mm disc is a post mount caliper. I would love to have a post mount like show in the facebook page, but the dude doesnt make them yet, as you can see from my recent post. That being said, my option of the paragon dropout was an ISO 2 bolt design... so the last dropouts linked will work quite well... thanks!

    I dont mind making them myself, but I dont have a post mount jig like avaliable from Anvil and the investment in a professional jig doesnt make sense for me just to build this frame...

    Is this for the tandem build that you mentioned in your other thread? There's a reason 99% of disc-equipped tandems are running 200mm rotors.

    Yes, its for my tandem.

    I have a collection of different diameter discs to use, but Im going to build the frame for 140mm post mounts.
    Should I have a problem with 140/160 I will step up to 8" rotors...


    The area we live and ride in doesn't have any hills, so we are pretty much limited to what we can spin down a 0.3% avg grade.

    You're gonna smoke the 140's.

    Just take the disc radius into consideration as big ones want to hit the stay.

    Why not just put on an ISO mount from Nova?
