    Inbred 29er rack mounts??

    From those who have used a rack on their inbred 29ers (particularly the vertical dropouts):

    Were the threads clean on the mounts? Paint or other issues?

    Any other issues or things you had to work through?

    Well, I took a chance and bought one.

    Frame looks awesome.
    Rack/fender mounts do have over spray, and will have to be chased.
    BB, inside of seat tube and inside of head tube look good to go.

    Excited to get it built

    Never having used a tap, I watched a couple videos on youtube on how to use a tap, and read Sheldon Browns (RIP man) page on using taps.

    Tool Tips--Taps

    Couple bucks on a 5mm x .8 tap and handle, and cleaning the threads was a piece of cake. Threads are now smooth as silk.

    Frame looks awesome, cant wait to get the rest of the build going!!
