    IF conversion

    Just got word from Brian at Circle A Cycles that my frame is done. I had a 2002 IF Steel Deluxe with v-brake posts that I wanted to convert to "B" size. After seeing misterdangerpants' last project from Circle A, the decision to have them do the work was an easy one to make.

    Frame pics before it was boxed up.

    Brian does some nice work! Looking forward to seeing the build pics. I was just down there last week to drop off a crankset they needed for disc conversion I'm having done on my 1994 Rhygin. Chris is replacing the seat stays and chain stays to accommodate a 2.5" tire. The frame will also be sporting Paragon sliders so it'll be able to take either a 26" or 650B wheel set. Anyway, I'm surprised I didn't see your frame while I was there.

    Again, looks great!

    I'm using Magura MT8 brakes. They come with black lines. I'm not too savy on what's out there for aftermarket brake lines. Any suggestions would be welcome.

    I really don't know, "even". I put a "B" wheel in my frame to check it out. I know that's not a readily available wheel for most people to just grab off the shelf.

    He may have meant how are you going to run them along the frame and down to the disc tabs in back.

    Oh. Brian removed the regular cable guides and installed disc brake hose guides.
