Saw that on your blog. Those are really neat looking.

Personally I'd love to see more track end versions with slotted disc mounts like my On One Inbred.

And that cut-out in front of the dropout looks like it would make a good beer opener too! Any chance a slight mod could be made (groove or small "hook") to facilitate that process? :)

those look great!
Would make a PERFECT clean tail end on an arched s-stay bike!

(i might have to start paying attention to your blog now...)

Sweet. OnOne has a similar design: very clever solution when you want to use disc brakes with horizontal dropouts for SS.

Am I dense? What's the advantage of these over traditional seat stay mounting?

They are out of the way for mounting racks or fenders.

Cleaner look: They sit "in" the frame instead of "on top" of it. You can run your brake line down along the downtube.

I hope I inspired them slightly, though I know others did 'em before I did.

They've made them symmetrical - my drive side ones are shorter (as they don't have to be longer). Saves some weight, but I guess makes rear stay fitting a touch more fiddly in some cases.
