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=item3a7edad669It'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.htmlBut 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!Simon
been down that roadshort 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 rearRebound 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
Hi guys,Thx for the reply & I know that its easier just to change the frame but my frame meant alot to meI know that I could use A2Z convetor or the one that u recomended but just wanna know if I could get me hand on it locallyAgain, thx alot for the time to replyRegards,Mac
