Default Re: Firmstrong (ha) first ride

Here's an upside to a cheap frame...feeling free to change it!
I added an Avid BB disc in about an evening.

I mounted the wheel with the caliper clamped in place by a wad of inner tube bands, pivoting it into place carrying a cardboard bracket template.

After trial and error, I made a tab that fit.

The same method was used to position the tab for two tack welds on the outside before running a bead on the inside of the leg. A dab of close enuff paint sealed the deal. Yes, it stops quite well!
