    disc brake inside rear triangle

    Anyone know of a cable actuated disc brake caliper that will fit IS mounts inside a rear triangle? I've got a Van Dessel Ramble Tamble with drop bars and brifters. Avid BB5 and BB6 are out. If I do go hydraulic will choices be limited with these as well? Not a heck of a lot of room in there!

    in other frames with similar mounts like the OnOne inbred, one can mount Avid mech brakes but only in sizes bigger than 160mm......maybe that is an option in your Ramble Tamble?

    Good point - the further away from the drop-outs - the more room for the mechanical brake arms inside the frame triangle.
