I planned on simply swapping the rear disk on my Giant Stiletto from the bike's hub over to the Xtalyte 5305R.

I completely failed to imagine that there would be no provision on the hubmotor to mount the disk. Well, gee, it has a Shimano 7-speed cluster - so it ought to have a disk (or at least a disk mount) right???

Any ideas or tips or (best of all!) actual experience mounting a disk on the motor greatly appreciated!




If it ain't broke, fix it til it is!
