    By in the country, you mean England? You listed the price in pounds, that's why I'm wondering...

    Seems to be an influx of british riders on this site as of late...

    And if we take T-F as an example, we do not want that.

    unless they are like the boon, butler, slinger, holroyd, scott, tunicliffe, staples, etc. oh yea, english riders are a good thing. english post whores are more than a bad thing.

    Unless these are made of steel, the rear disc caliper will crack the left seatstay, even with the superfluous bracing tube. I've broken three frames here.

    Does that mean It will hold up to rear disk usage? (beeing steel)

    I like the look of the stock, but many wont go for the horiz dropouts. (and many will?)

    steel alone will not ensure a 100% brake-free frame. no. you also need the "superfluous" brace. even then, on a 26" bike, the place this frame is most likely to brake will be where the disc tab is welded to the seatstay. but this would probably be your best bet for a disc frame. other than megamo which i have heard absolutely nothing +/- about.

    I think BrettM has said in the past that in his experience horizontal drop outs and rear discs are a bad combination.

    its hard to find a rotor/chain length/etc combination that works. i imigine that with the adjustability of a avid it would be fine though. i tried a magura gustav in an azonic ds-1 and it was a nightmare.
