    97 Klein Mantra Rear Disc Brake Options

    Anyone know of a way to install rear disc brakes on a Klein Mantra that doesn't have disc brake mounts. Are there any frame adapters available that work? I found the following site: www.discbrakeadapters.com, however it states that it works only on frames with flat rear drop outs. The drop out on my 97 mantra are curved.

    Any suggestions,

    Thanks

    ... and if we just ...

    I thought all mantra URTs were the same. If you find someone who can help, this would be the place. My '99 mantra has the hayes 22mm direct mount for discs, but they're pretty hard to find these days.. I have spoken to a few Mantra owners along the way, however, and most say that the upgrade to discs is worth the hassle. '97 mantra owners would probably be harder to come by. But like I said, If there are any out there with discs, this would be the place to meet up with them.
    I haven't seen a Klein Mantra owner's club or fan club yet. seems like a bike that ppl either love or hate..

    My suggestion: upload a picture of your bike and it's chainstay. ppl can help better if they can visualize your situatiion.

    Best of luck.
