Style points


I think the recycled rotor disc brace looks better curving backwards. Gonna do 'em all this way, I think, unless someone requests otherwise.

Hope that's my frame, because that looks sharp!

I think they look better curved forward b/c it looks like a double disk when the wheel is installed

wish I had one on my walt...guess I'll have to order another frame!!

I liked it better the front way too.

I third that opinion

I'm in the hole and would prefer mine outward. I agree with Nick.

Yeesh. I guess I'll have to ask first. "Innie, or outie"? Shows how much style I have... none.

Does anyone prefer the old "little piece of scrap tubing" option?

If Hope still makes custom rotors.... the ideas could be endless for that little bit. How 'bout lightning bolts or skulls or 'WW' or 'your name here'?
Oh, and options are good. The tube looks clean (should be at the same angle as the seat tube though).
'Outie' looks good... the rotors are a little more 'fun' than 'business'. The double rotor effect IS cool.
'Innie' looks clean, too... like... fastback.

as long as it fits/handles/weighs/costs like a good WW, do what you think is best boss.

I think it looks sharp, but would like to see it with the brake rotor mounted before saying it looks better. The double rotor look was cool too.
