Hey all,

I'll be starting a new frame in the next month or so and was hoping to use a track style dropout and the sliding disc tab that bikelugs used to carry. Does anyone know of an alternative? I see Steve over at Coconino Cycles is using a nice looking tab (link below) anyone know who makes it or where I can get it?

Hey, man - the supply chain on those is fuzzy at best - I need to research if I can have some made but, damn - I am F-ing busy. They DO work great with the Paul dropouts!! - Steve Garro, Coconino Cycles.

We had some made a few years ago. We had inquiries about them while at NAHBS this year. If we went back and had some more made do you all think there would be a market for them? We have the design and the "connection" to get it done. I'll post some pics when I get to another computer.

Thanks,
CJB

I'd buy some too, I've handmade three in the past few months so having something on hand would be a nice timesaver.
Fwiw, I've found they work best when the slot is high enough to let the caliper sit at 12 o'clock over the disc with the axle at the middle of the d/o.

Dude, if Steve Garro is using them and says they are the **** you would be crazy not to have a hundred sets on hand.
I'd take 5 sets unseen 10 if they are cheap enough.
The main reason I use sliders on my xc race bike is for fast flat repair. For a short track bike or trail cruiser I would opt for the simpler lighter horizontal drops and therefore need the slotted disc mount.
lets see some pics!

Our design is a little different than the Pacenti one. Check out the photo below. I thought I had some pics of one on a bike but I can't find and up close shot of it.

On the designs where the disc slots are parallel, can you even slide the brake without having the top disc tab hit the brake body?

I have been using bikes that have had these tabs on them for several years now and they have worked great - used a variety of different brakes and hubs and have been able to set the brakes up so they wheel comes out without hitting anything - and still have full pad contact. I had been thinking about getting some made - but would need a drawing for the waterjet guy (they would be cheap - prob 5 bucks each with material)

We had these made about 4 yrs ago. Thats an old photo that shows Martas with IS only caliper. Nowadays most all brakes run post-mount with adapters. We've never had any problems with compatibility. About half the time the caliper can be positioned to where the wheel can be removed without needing brake adjustment.

Thanks
