Nice bike !
Any Travel agent between the v-brakes and the 5700 levers ? How’s the feel when braking ?

Nope, no travel agent. Rims have to be dead straight and pads pretty close to the rim but other than that I think the lever feel is good. Better than any mech disc brake I've tried that's for sure!

Have you modified the derailleur in any way?

I've only switched out the old B-screw for a new one because the threads were stripped on the old one.

Really awesome. I'm curious about the modification you made for increased tire clearance, how'd you go about that?

Cheers. I bought a 25mm long piece of 76mm ID steel pipe and mocked it up against the chainstays. Then I cut out a single piece from the chainstays and cs bridge. Took some more work to get the steel ring to fit but once I was happy with the fit I brazed it in there with brass. That's about it :)
