    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! HELP: need XTC team '00 rear frame w/ canti mounts

    hi!

    i bought a like-new Y2K giant XTC Team bike that came with hope discs. since i'm a devoted weightweenie i wanna mount V-brakes on my bike. BUT IT HAS NO CANTI-MOUNTS!!!! *arrrrgh*

    from what i was told, i can only mount the rear frame of the 2000 models (true?).

    anyway, i just wanted to ask if there is somebody who would be so kind and trade his canti-rear frame for my disc-only. or maybe one of you guys knows where to find it... any help is appreciated.


    BTW: for those interested in my team-edition rear frame: mine looks all shiny and new, ridden only about 1500 miles


    thanks,

    Max

    I replied in general as well. Is yours the XTC hardtail or an XTC NRS? If it is a hardtail email me

    They don't exist. The Team frame was sold as a frame only. The XTC DS1 and DS2 both had disc brakes as well, the DS1 with Hope and the DS2 with crap that most people replaced.

    The "3" came later, either 2001 or 2002, can't remember.

    Here's my DS2. NRS is small on these and got big later...

    They don't exist??? Are you talking about an NRS, because they definetly exist w/ canti mounts. Start looking on ebay.
    Even if you are talking about the XTC hardtail, they too exist w/ canti and disc mounts.
    don't lose hope. btw- Marta SL's are lighter than most v-brakes.
    Schralp it Heavy.
