Hi Mac,

I believe you are asking if you can install Disk Brake on a non-discbrake frame.
My call is that don't bother. Get a new frame.

But if the frame means a little more to you and you would like to keep the frame, you can use one of these...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/A2Z-Universal-Disc-Brake-Frame-Adaptor-MTB-Bike-DH-XC-New-DM-UNI-/251236374121?pt=UK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR&hash=item3a7edad669

It's call DM-UNI.

THe idea is simple, makes your frame Disc ready in minutes. But things ain't that easy.

You can read more over at this thread

http://forums.mtbr.com/brake-time/a2z-disk-brake-adapter-frames-without-disk-mount-anyone-try-one-79919.html

But again... I emphasized, use a disc brake frame is possible. Don't force something that isn't design for it. Pretty much applicable in everything.

Good luck in your find!

been down that road

short answer ... forget it

the most difficult is the rear brake like the brother above mentioned (front brake can still buy a fork with disc mounts)

in the end i did 50/50 disc front and v-brakes rear

Rebound Center quoted almost $300 just to braze on the disc brake mounts on the rear and your frame seat stay or chain stay might not be able to withstand the stress either
