    Anyone a vintage tandem pro?

    I tried in the vintage forum before without luck. I have a Mountain Goat Lombada from, I think, the early 90's. Its got a broken front hub and I'm looking for a replacement. The problem is the disk brake mounting holes are not standard and I can't slap just any old hub on. If I go to modern parts I'm changing fork, caliper, wheel and disk. I'd rather keep the vintage look and just replace the hub. Any takers?

    Thanks.
    A wild man once explained to me how bicycles came from sailboats.

    Wow....Early '90s is vintage? You make me feel old. I hope you're referring to the 1890's.

    That doesn't sound like a stock set-up for that bike... the disc in particular. What's the branding on the original hub and what type of disc caliper is it fitted with?
