Nice color. Did you pull off the brake stops?
Brake stops? Are you referring to the things that the studs for v-brakes or canti's would thread into?

I did not remove those. I was fearful of grinding on welds on the thinner seat stays, and as hard as I ride I did not want to compromise the fork either. I simply removed the studs and installed some nice plastic caps made by problem looks clean, but not as clean as having them removed....I was just too chicken.
