    How do you make the calipers line up with the rotors?

    Lines up straight, wheel slides out easy, and takes very little adjustment anywhere the wheel sits in the dropout. Set up really easy. Its got a 12.5" high BB and a Boone cog on the disk hub is in the future for fixie use. Chain stays are short, 15.5 with a 2.3 tire if I want, and Trials are included in the warranty. Also full braze ons and a removeable rear hanger if I ever need it. Jon really hooked me up, check out the gussets under the chainstays at the dropout, custom head badge is from my Fire Company's Patch, Zona tubing, and custom dimensions on every tube. Post ride report tomorrow, Walt's fork I can already say rides excellent!

    The fork looks way out of proportion to the frame. Look at it. That frame is beefy looking and the fork looks like a skinny anorexic model.

    Why does there always have to be a 'HATER'???

    I guess the reason would be that Walt made exactly what was asked for.

    I don't get it. Without slotted mounts how can you adjust the caliper position if you have to move the hub to tighten the chain?

    It looks better in person than the pic shows, and rides really nice for up to very technical XC. Walt built this one extra sturdy for me, but it would be changed for anything too extreme.
    The Disk tab holes are both slightly ovalized if you are at the very ends of the dropouts.
