The new Gatorbrake disc brakes are installed, adjusted and ready to roll! This latest set of Gatorbrakes we bought for this bike build have some great improvements over the earlier models that we are running. They have added an improved pinch clamp for the cable and a curved cable guide leading in to the cable clamp.
N8 found a new set of Shimano Octalink mountain bike cranks and bottom bracket at Recycled Cycles over in Seattle and is checking bins today for a set of shifters and rear derailleur. The shift train will be either Shimano or Sram, depending on what's available, and in new or like new condition. I bought a Shimano Deore LX front derailleur off of eBay this morning.
It's all coming together nicely!
