> The brakes are interesting, but I'm more intrigued by the frame details. Apparently it was purpose-built as there is no (that I can see) derailleur hanger. And what's with that rear brake protector/rack thingy? Also odd are the two shifters for a 5 speed; although I have never seen an SA 5 speed implementation. Either way, it's a sweet JT.
