I would say include them, even though only a small number of flatlanders ride back brakes these days.

Do you guys really have problems tearing out removeable back brake mounts? Wow.  All my bikes so far have had welded mounts until the Intrikat I just bought.  On what frames?  Sound like they need to make the seat stays with thicker tubing around where the mounts screw in...

Thanks for the suggestion.
I've never seen it happen either. Could be they were brazed on instead of welded???

I would like to see photos or names of people that have them ripped out... to get a better idea...

Mine was the Mankind Alive frame 2nd Gen  ??? I bought it because of the ht and st angles minus the crappy useless rear end and short stand over height ::)

After countless backward decades the mounts finally gave out and I returned to my roots  :beer:
