    Cheers Chaps!

    Looks like I'm not the only one with this problem.

    However that is pretty worying...








    Especially that after contacting Canfield received pretty disconcerning reply.

    With questions if by any chance I'm riding in wet conditions

    Really? Last time when I checked MTB was about riding in ANY conditions...

    Cheers!

    I'm not metalurgist or steel technician, but had quite a few steel frames in my stable. Some of them chromium plated in some parts.
    So in my oppinion it is bad plating job, as I NEVER experienced anything like that. And some of these frames are now almost my age (41).

    What is really sad that Canfield was very, very slow in replying and sending "pearls of wisdom" in likes: it is normal, just use some steel wool to polish it out, are you riding in wet conditions...

    That is not exactly something I would call good customers service.

    I understand I'm just a poor relative from small island next to Europe but was expecting a bit more from such a company...

    Cheers!

    This is awesome! Definitely looking at doing the same.

    Question, what would stop you from drilling the headtube or downtube and have the cable completely internal??
    Something with wheels and brakes.
