    Kavik dropout inserts needed

    Hey,

    we have a frame here we've built and we're in a bit of pickle as we don't have any inserts for the dropouts.

    They're Kavik dropouts and we need some 12mm bolt-thru disk brake inserts. Vendor (Precision Billet) has no stock and we'd really like to get this bike out to our customer asap. Hoping someone has a stash somewhere. Will take the full set (inc hoods) if you don't want to split.

    Cheers

    Steven

    What happened to Kavik? Did they up and quit selling stuff?

    The web page is still active here:

    I'm not sure what the deal is. I've bought from Kavik directly in the past but all sales now are directed through Precision Billet (I assume they manufacture them). They have no stock and don't seem particularly motivated.

    Wow, suck. I guess I'd say cut 'em out and put in Polydrops or something else. Even if you can find a set of inserts, how much would it suck for the customer to need a new one in a year or two?

    Hey Mike, yes I did thanks. Managed to get them to make a few more. Not sure what the ongoing status of the dropouts as a product is though. Incidentally I saw a comment from you (on VS I think) that you'd seen a flat-mount version? Care to share?
