Dropout dimensions for disk brakes?

Hello everyone!
I'm designing some metal parts for my next [bamboo] frame and I couldn't find the right frame (dropout) dimensions and clearance for the rear disk brakes.
Can anyone help me with those?


Thank you very much.

Not yet. I rode it in my garage for testing once [kinda crazy flex, maybe I should have used larger tubes] but ended breaking up the right shifter mount, so I gotta fix it before finishing the bike. Plus I got a lazy and my university semester is on again witch means less time to work on stuff. But don't worry, I got another project right now and soon it will force me to finish the first bike once and for all.
You know what, IŽll take some pics of her tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile..


What is the diameter (and possible threading?!) for the holes in that mount?! I estimated 6mm from unterhausen's LINK (PDF)
Thank you.

Guys, I still need the I.D. of the caliper mounting holes. Are they threaded?
Thanks!
