Question 29er frame dead end

im looking for a frame for my new 29er.

i want to run a v-brake without useing a RAD adapter... other than finding a torch and welding some brake bosses on,i can find nobody thats making such a thing....

ive been trying to get JD on the phone about maybe getting a Hunter built for a 29er but no luck yet.

i would like to avoid spending $400 on a frame so if you know of any other options please tell me.

the Yuni's are out of the question because i dont like 22.2 seat tubes.

Can do any size, shape, etc.

Have done coker sized twin tube frame and I have one for my own 29er.

why not get some bosses brazed on?

brazed on to what? there isnt a 29er frame with a bigger than 22.2 seat tube around to braze them too.

how much $ for a 29er frame with a 27.2 inner diameter seat tube and brake bosses?

why don't you just email rick?

rick@huntercycles.com

i've been talking to him about a hunter frame to accommodate the hs33 brakes. he's cool to deal with. it might take a couple of days for a response though.

good luck

Send Paul Wyganowski a message too. He does Coker, trials, and freestyle frames; I'm sure he'd do a 29er too. Brake bosses and all.

Great choice of colors too (basically anything I wanted).

daino,

If you go to the scroll-down menu, there's a 28-inch option. Here: http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=592
