    I wanted to try those racks but the lack of lower attachments stops me from getting them. How do you deal with attaching the lower hooks of the pannier so they don't bounce around?

    Just positioned the hooks on the closest portion of the frame, they adjust and the top hooks lock so its not that big an issue for me.

    I see you had to cut away the rear cross piece and weld in that little U shaped channel, presumably to get the clearance for the 700c touring tire? Did you mod the front section as well? Pictures?

    With the cantilever brake mounts removed from the fork, it can fit a 26"x3" DH tire on a 2.5" (65mm) wide rim:

    Big Dummy clearance for 700c in rear

    Sorry I was unclear. I didn't mean the fork, I meant the front part of the rear end of the frame, the cross tube that the footsies slide into. I have 2.5" Hookworms on 26" Large Marges on mine and the clearance to the frame cross member was close. Just wondering how close it was on yours with 700c. Any chance you could put up a photo?

    Thanks
