    New question here. What do these do?



    What are these 2 threaded holes for?

    I was in the process of the build and spotted these, and can't think what would fit down there at the back of the bottom bracket?

    If you don't have a welded cable stop for a front derailleur you can bolt a stop to these threads.
    Nicolai offers this option for the afr at least.

    other than that it might be in some way related to the pivot axle?

    They have grub screws in them that stops the main pivot axle from rotating.

    This could be handy since my AM frame came without the front mech cable stop

    I'm very happy with the Hammerschmickle but it's not exactly the frame I thought I had ordered I'd prefer to have the option of a standard front mech.

    No options from Nicolai - "you got what you ordered" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The issue was with the brand new at the time online ordering system and there was no way to go back and check what was ordered. I could have got upset with dipper and Nicolai and demanded a new frame be built for me... or I could do what I did and get a cheep HamourSchmoozle and get on with riding it... which I'm glad I did since it's AWESOME!

    One day it will bite me when the HS breaks or I need to sell the frame... hence figuring a bolt on mount would be a good idea if it exists...

    It bugs me a bit when I think about it... which luckily is not often... and especially not when riding this unbelievably good bike

    I'd rather not litter this forum with reviews etc from me... I posted some first impressions elsewhere and I'm still playing with the simple suspensions settings such as air pressure (which is new to me)... it takes me ages to get these things tweaked becasue if I'm riding I'm not normaly tweaking... all anyone needs to know at the moment is that I AM LOVING MY HELIUS AM
