    A place to braze some brakes

    I've got a 90's frame that I can't sell because it was my late father's, and he'd kill me if I sold it or threw it out.

    Since I have other bikes I can see, and not this one, I decided that I might as well do something different with this.

    As seen in this thread, I'd like to possible fit some 700Cx38 tires, but I'll need either a disc brake tabs brazed on or the canti studs moved up.

    Any places in PA or surrounding area that can do this for me? What about moving the rear frame arch up an inch? Any ideas on cost?

    I'll second Rich Adams. He's an artist. He should have no issues doing this for you. Not sure on cost though. It's $50 dollars to repair one.

    Talk to Phil at Shirks, he usually is there on Saturdays. He may be able to help you out

    another option would be to go with a disk brake adapter

    simply brazing on a rear disk tab doesn't take into account the extra forces put on the seat stays. might not be a big deal since you wouldn't be downhilling or anything on it but this might be a better choice. A buddy put one on his bike (didn't change wheel size, but i dont think it should matter) and seems to work well
