    Fetish Owners..

    I've got an issue with a Fetish frame that I built up last year. It's an older Discipline frame, the same frame as the Fixation, SS with a RD hanger. And I'm a former shop rat with a good workshop setup in the basement, so I don't think the problem is me.

    I'm putting discs on and the back caliper won't fit correctly with the wheel installed. The only fix that I can think of is to use an adaptor for an 8" rotor with the original 6" rotor and see if I get enough pad contact to make things work. Any Fetish owners out there encounter this problem?

    The rear caliper can't be mounted so that it clears the rotor. I'm not sure if the mounts on the frame are in the wrong place or what the problem is.
