    wanted: '01 stinger disc rear stays

    theres 2 folks that are lookin for some '01 stinger disc compatable stays, im 1 of em. the other guy has the very last stinger ft tri ever made and would like to update the '00 rear to match correctly.

    it need not come with the disc adaptor itself but it wont hurt if it does. if ya have a adaptor or 3, let me know about those too please. i know of 3 guys lookin for those.

    also not important are the chainstays, the upper mac-ilack strut shock stay is all thats needed but a full rear is dandy if thats what ya have. also, we dont much care if its used, painted, scratched or covered in old stickers cuz the plan is to re polish anyway. please, no killed, wallowed out, dented, broken or bent bits.

    if ya dont know what yer lookin for, see the pics below. this is the '00 and previous non disc version. note the single non threaded, stepped hole in the dropout itself, no threaded hole atop the stay. the newer stay has this threaded hole for the adaptor to bolt into.

    pm or email me if ya can help. thanx!

    I've got 1 of the Turner/Hayes adaptors left and I think it could work if you bolted it to the dropout then used it for a jig to drill the top of the compression strut for a riv-nut.

    a little birdie says thats a no go. the tube wont support the extra forces. it was beefed up in '01, hence the slightly heavyer frame.

    is that adaptor available for sale or just as a loaner jig?

    last version

    The last generation of Stinger stays have a dropout that looks Way bigger than the one shown. It is more of a small version of the XCE dropout with the integrated upper adapter mount machined into the plate. I would really like one of those as well.

    Is the goal to run disc brakes?, or is the goal to run disc brakes ONLY w/ the original stays?

    I ran the Brake Therapy setup on a ti hardtail for a few years back in 2000, worked perfectly and is period correct.

    good question rrrrrrrrroeder! ive got a woodman disco system i ran on the burner 4 years ago. works great but its a brick and engagement of the r hub is lackluster. better than a xt but not as good as a xtr i suppose. dt tells me the bt's had a history of snappin the boss's off his frames and reccomended the woodman. id rather keep it light and clean if i ever do make the change.

    dt wants 1 to finish off a '01 front tri that currently has a non disc '00 rear for his wall of fame.

    Really?, I talked to the them about that cause I had heard that as well, he said they had not had any issues with boss's breaking, mine never had an issue. You could run stock hubs with the BT unit.

    I kinda agree with TA tho, the V's are fine for that rig.

    Disc front, vee rear. No biggie. I thought I remember somewhere in the past hearing DT recommend one type of aftermarket adapter over another.

    CC, DT did produce the I.S. adaptor for those dropouts and other than a few still in service on mostly XCE's they're gone.The Hayes 22mm adaptor is the only one I've got left. BUT, WHAT THE HECK, leave the V's on there, even most of the pros were still running V's in that era. psst,don't tell anybody but I still run V's on my Flux, ceramic rims/pads, it's got plenty of whoa power. My Stinger, WTB Bon Tempe, Bow Ti all have V's. Nice ride write up too BTW !

    not sure rick. just know what i heard from him in '03 and didnt wanna risk it even though the woodman is sorta a pain in the ass qr wise and needs a dedicated hub regardless of what they say. the xt mod did not clear even with the proper spacing.

    and yer right boys, the veeeeeeeeeeeee's work dandy. but theres gonna come a day when that may not be a easy route to take with discs becommin the norm down to a $500 bike. with the way these turners last, i may need to swap at some point if the shock seals hold that long. ive got fork spares and spare forks so im cool up front.

    Well if ya do bud can I make a suggestion eek I think Vs will always be around, pads etc!



    Still in case, why not hook up a set of Avid cables dis calipers, so ya can keep those XTR levers up front and keep her as origonal as poss, its sorta part of its charm!

    Just a thought?

    ive got 2 sets of bb-7's ready to go.

    look again, those are NIB ultimate levers i picked up for this build however i do have a set of xtr vee levers in a box but those are slated for the burner retro rebuild if i cant find all the original canti parts. there were 3 diff versions of my burner from late '95 to early '05 when i went to discs, so 4 total.

    i built it with the xtr's fri night/sat mornin when i posted the 1st pics. the avids showed up later that mornin and went on that day. much better feel overall and a touch lighter too. most of all they look bad ass with the black ops brake/stem package.

    I thought you were messing with me

    They do look bad ass, ya know ya started a new Homer trend, everyone is gonna be scouring flee bay, classyfieds, etc looking for these things as next months UGI projects

    Jayem those Maggies were the bomb no doubt about it a little hard on rims though, I twisted a couple with those things, awesome brakes, rim hydralulics ahead of there time!

    same here. these pics from '99 show em only on the rear but i did run em on my judy as far back as '98. good brake but the feel was poop for xc stuff. and hea-vy! never liked the levers either. they didnt match a shifter pod profile for shyt and the lever was longer than my list of excuses for not havin my wallet at check time.
