Pretty sure this took more than twice the time to weld than the typical front triangle (Due to the acute angles and the added surface area) It was a challenge, and sort of fun, but I don't think I want to make another any time soon.

 The neighbor's Alliance custom bike has Hope "V-twin" road disc brakes. The rear connector bled out so I had to do a re-fill job. I don't know why this system exists, as it seems to have way more friction than a well lubed mechanical brake. The V-twin is basically a cable that comes off the lever and pulls a plunger past the reservoir, so it still has some cable friction. I'd suggest a good mechanical brake.
 Stoked on gun metal color (trans pewter) and larger chainstays.
