  • Head Tube: 75.5
  • Seat Tube: 70
  • Rear End: 12.8" - 13.1" ( centred )
  • Stand over Height: 9"
  • Weight: 5 lbs 4.4 oz
The name of the frame is called the Stranger Ballast frame. It is a 20' wheel setup. Any tips?
In addition to those specs, the company website description says:
"The Ballast Frame is made from heat-treated 4130 chromoly and features an integrated headtube drilled for gyro tabs, top and downtube gussets, ... removable brake mounts, ..."
So if the brake mounts have been removed it might be possible to contact them and get a replacement.
