What have you guys done? I can weld, but I need some ideas. Something that looks halfway decent and is pretty easy. My ideas involve a lot of fab work or else are easy but look like a hack job. I have some braze on cable stops I hacked off an old bike I tossed out years ago and one of my fab ideas involves using one of theses. I'm open to bolt on rear adapters but they look like they might move around and not work that well?

Are you talking about something like this Paul brake booster?

I'd think that any plate steel or aluminum chunk could be cut to fit. Just bolt the canti posts together and keep clear of the tires
No, I want something like this. I might try and weld a noodle onto the seat post tube. Burn through will be an issue. I do like the horseshoe idea though, but not for the bike I'm building right now.
