    Default NS Liar Frame brake tab faulty, WTF!!

    I just bought 2017 NS Liar frame from CRC to build my speed machine for BMX track and 4X.
    I finished installed everyhting, leaving brakes last. And the brake tab appeared faulty, not aligned with any IS adapter. I tried Shimano, Sram and Clark in 160mm and 180mm versions. I went to ForTheRiders local shop in Brisbane and they confirmed the frame is off.

    But seriously, how, how is this even possible??!! The brake tab is one piece, not individually welded 2 parts. It must be made in a tooling. HOW could NS get this wrong??? This Liar frame has been same since years ago. I am just now banging my head onto the wall.

    Can this be fixed and any options? Last photo is what I found online, same frame. They must had luck with correct brake tab.

    Cable tie m8. Who uses brakes on a BMX track anyway?

    Wow, I've never seen that much of a stuff, such a shame for you! That's a nice frame!
    The quickest way around it would be to have a custom mount made that will line up with your frame holes. Do the science though, if the mounting holes are different by that amount then you may need to have the custom adapter a little lower on one end so the brake pads are running on the middle of the rotor and not off center.
    That would surely warrant a new frame though, thats a massive fuck up.

    I've not seen anything like that since building my mates alibaba frame!

    The worst part of this is that you have to strip everything though.
