Keep on rockin in the free world........
have recently purchased... 2nd hand, a GIANT ATX 840, the bike has both front and rear shimano hydraulic discs (BR M-525). However, there appears to be a bit of a custom opperation involving jubilee clips and screws secureing the rear caliper. i wish to engineer a more secure mounting, does anyone have any suggestions.
Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I see a woman in the night
With a baby in her hand
Under an old street light
Near a garbage can
Now she puts the kid away,
and she's gone to get a hit
She hates her life,
and what she's done to it
There's one more kid
that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love,
never get to be cool.

the clips are probably to hold the pads in. there should be a total of 4 hex screws that hold the caliper onto the frame; two that hold the adapter onto the frame, and two that attach the caliper to the adapter.

Looks like they've used the wrong adapter.
The adapter mounted to the frame looks like one typically used on the fork. Then they stacked a series of spacers between the adapter and the caliper.
Just go to a Giant dealer and have them order you the right one.

My new friends have helped me :), Now might be an appropriate time to mention i'm English...I'm English by the way.
Giant dealers (not the ones that stand on street corners) are hard to come by in Englang, Nottingham especialy....so.
sourced correct size Hex screws, had to drill two 5.5mm holes in frame to correctly attach the caliper adaptor, sounds like a job and a half, but the Alu frame drills like butter. Now everything is as it should be!
Many thanks to Dirt bike and a2p for replying, please be carefull out there its very dangerous, trust no one, keep spending!
