Thanks again Scott. The catalog through me off a bit when I saw it was a U brake frame. Im.much more fond of cantis and v brakes so I'm happy, I was just wondering if the frame may have been altered. It won't see much saddle time between my 95 Yo and new 2.1, but will be a perfect candidate to yank the kids around in the Burley ��

Thanks again for the help and little known information.
