    Paragon Slider idea

    So I want disc brakes on my 02 redline. problem: no disc tabs.

    So i was eying the pics of a paragon slider. From what I can see, it looks to still be on a horizontal drop out, just sealed off, instead of open.

    Is it possible to attach a paragon slider set up to my current horizontal dropouts? If kept tight enough, it should slide out the back i assume.

    thoughts? Any one tried it?

    I dont have a way of testing with out buying them. Maybe some one with a plethora of SS (like monogod), has a paragon slider rig and a standard h-drop out rig, that could give it a shot. I may be way out of line, and have to deal with rim brakes till I can afford the frame mod or a new frame. Im just not a big fan of rim brakes regardless.

    that might be what it looks like, but no it won't work. Also, your redline might be 110mm spaced (did we already discuss this?). Anyway, you might be able to get something fabricated but for that price you could get a 2007 flite frameset or a 2007 flite. Long story short, paragon sliders don't just plug into track ends.

    nah, they need the paragon "drop outs." If you notice, those hex bolts are considerably smaller in diameter than your solid bolt on axle.

    you could probably find a new monocog frameset with disc mounts for almost the same price, and way less bother than dealing with the paragon sliders. They seem to be kicking around regularly for the $200-250 range new. I'm sure you can find a better deal than that...

    i didnt think those would work with the variable wheel mounting in a horizontal drop out.
