    Trying to add canti bosses to steel frame in Socal - suggestions?

    I won't be able to buy the parts necessary to do this myself and besides, seems way more involved so might as well find someone who knows what they are doing.

    I'm trying to add canti bosses and cable stop to the rear of a Columbus Tenax road bike frame to use as a cheap cyclocross and commuter.

    I'm hoping to find a builder or hobbyist in the San Bernardino/Riverside region of SoCal. I see that brazing is best but some have welded carefully with fine results.

    Can you lead me in the right direction for converting a frame? Thanks

    I dont know where you are located in so cal but Pacific Coast Cycles in oceanside I know does braze-on/welding type things . ask chuck (he owns it) he might be able to help you and if he can't do it he will probably know someone who can.

    Why won't you be able to buy the parts? Braze-on's are available at a number of places.

    BTW, if you get stuck and can't find anyone to do it in your area, drop me a PM, I'm sure we can figure it out.
    Becareful buying/selling bike parts on-line. I learned the hard way. :(
