Yes…

…I still occasionally get asked to build something with rim brake mounts. It’s starting to be hard to remember where they need to go now, though, so I’m always digging back through one of my notebooks to figure out where to put the studs. Funny, when I started doing this disc brakes were practically unheard of outside of DH. I think I did maybe a couple of disc bikes in my entire first year of building.

Here we have 90’s vintage braking… with some 90s style paint to match (I only built the boring black fork, though, to be fair) and a nice looong early 90s style stem… you could roll by a fine young thing on this bike and use your best 90s pickup line
