Will a DiamondBack Response work with a GEBE rack mount?

    This bike is one of my choices for a GEBE. I just want to make sure there aren't obvious reasons why it wouldn't work with a 40cc Tanaka GEBE rack mount system. It has rear disc brakes on the front and rear and I was planning on buying the Velocity rim from GEBE. Will that cause any problems?

    you are going to have some issues with the rear disk caliper and main mount strap clearance.

    see kawasaki999 pics of his mongoose blackcomb fro possible alternatives.

    That's A Cool Looking Bike, You need to be able to stick a credit card between the frame 8 1/2 inches up from the real axel to check for drive ring clearence. and you can't have a quick release rear axel, I can't tell from the picture?? The front mount strap might require some creativity, but not a show stopper. The big Tanaka would be awesome on that bike, Wish i had a suspension and disk brake's !!!
    I guess the only issue Iam not sure about is the cable for the rear brake might rub the belt or drive ring?? I cant tell from the photo??
    Look at the GEBE web site and see if there is a bike like yours under the reviews section.
    If the GEBE will fit ok, You won't be dissapointed with it, It's a rock solid system.

    GEBE sells a front and rear disk wheel.

    "Eagle / Velocity 26" Rear Wheel w/Disk Brake Hub:"

    Also from their site,


    Actually, there's quite a few disk brake bikes in the reviews section of the GEBE website.
