Class X II
« on: October 28, 2007, 07:10:31 AM »
is anyone interested in an 18.1" class x with back brakes? i may be nitpicking, but i would have thought their revisions would have included taking the back mounts off. what's ya'lls thoughts on that? do any of the St. Martin team riders run back brakes?

Back brakes are the future dude! haha  ;D

No really... from a production point of view it is easier to fit them all with mounts then that suits everyone... they could have used removable mounts too on the other hand...hmmm

one of the main reasons i picked a Wells frame was that it had brake mounts--and yes, i do use brakes because i like the option of running brakes.  for some reason the brakeless frames are hard to sell--i've noticed lots on ebay and flatlandfuel on clearance.  i'm glad st.martin was smart enough to keep removable mounts!!!!
