Can you take a photo of your bike and what parts your working with?

I tried to understand your post, but I cant. As far as the A2Z adapter works, you just bolt it together on your rear drop out. You will need a 6 bolt hub, disk rotor, and brake caliper.

I just dont know what your trying to do? Make a 6 bolt fixed drive train for a FFW? Or trying to add a disk to a nondisk frame?

"bmx sized bike with disc brakes" In this case a 2005 DK Fury 24. The dropouts are different, and I'm not sure if it'll fit. I have a custom wheel set with a flip/flop TNT Derringer hub. I found this, for that. (disc brake adapter - free or flip-flip hub)
http://www.bicycledesigner.com/bike-parts/bicycle-brake/disc-brake-adapter---free-or-flip-flip-hub.html
Ok, they deleted the site, and I'm not sure if it'll fit either. They suggested different hubs, and weld on mounts, cause my chain adjuster won't let any conversion system fit on to the dropouts. But I'm broke from buying parts already, any suggestions? Boss said: No overtime available.

I would honestly not waste your time with it.


Save up for a proper bike, or upgrade the brakes on it.. Why do you want discs so badly?

bmx brakes suck and mod geometries suck
disk brakes suck too

you can run a 20" rim on a mod but i dont think you could get away with more than a 2.3" tire

Agreed.

You would have to weld a brake tab on there.

You can find some cheap deals on here for used stuff, just gotta keep your eyes on the forsale section and some cash on hand.. because when those deals come up, they get sold quick.

Really? Buy the right stuff and your ass bone will thank you later. Cant wait to see how you mount a rotor on a flipflop hub. Zip ties????

Well, my point is to save, and work with what you got. If i had the machines for it, I'd build it myself, but I don't. What I was thinking was traditional brake pads for a disc at least (rubber based), instead these guys that make em, made em like motorcross for the integral structure of the disc and pads, and to minimizes the weight and space available. I don't know, I guess I just wanna ride like I killed two angels, and took their halos, and used em for rims. I guess a rim guards' an option for brake pads for traditional BMX brakes, but that'd just add more weight. Most complicated thought was something like the Superman ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain California, mag rails micro sized for inside my rims, reverse polarity unit clamped on the lower tube on my dropouts, solar pannels would be on my bar pads, and have an electronic lever that activates the polarity field reaction by blue tooth, lol.. Fuck it I'm getting coaster brakes.

See this guy had the right idea. But I don't even know where this thing's available or if it's even custom made. It was labeled getto, but if the frame he attached it to had ridges on it like handlebars would, maybe there's a chance to it. With an adaptor for a flip/flop hub and rubber pads for the disc, I'd settle for this.

http://urbanvelo.org/montano-velo-fixed-hub-disc-adapter/ Now these dudes claim this is the solution. "120mm spaced ‘cross or track bike," I don't know what the hell that means but it sounds smaller than "135mm rear spacing" mentioned at that post. Without the mount being machined into your frame for a BMX type size, it'll still cost you some labor fees. And that's just more bs I really don't wanna deal with.

that would not work for trials, there is too much backwards force on the brakes.

it would only cost $20 to get a disk tab and a brace welded to a frame if you had everything prepped.

I'm just looking for solutions dude. Here's another one I saw similar. http://urbanvelo.org/broakland-fixed-hub-disc-adapter-v2/ Backwards force won't make a difference if you had it turned right of the opposite of the drive, or hub thread. The disc just might lock up on the hub. I guess $20 bucks isn't that bad for a mount. But I'm still looking for a lightweight conversion. I don't really feel like wobbling while pedaling. By the way, who's alexzero13?

that looks like it would move the brake rotor out from the thread-on adapter too much, you might snap the rotor bolts.

If you handed me a preped frame, mitered ISO tab, and mitered brace it would still cost more than $20 to weld it on.

But, if you had the ability to miter a disc tab and brace with proper fit up for welding, you'd have the ability to weld it on.

By the time your done you're going to spend $100's that could be put toward a new frame.

Not really helping guys. That's a lot of doubt. Does everyone just post to expect someone here to fail? I'll come back to this thread when I figure it out then, till then, just ride....

not everyone that can make those parts can weld

i asked a guy about welding a gusset to a frame and repairing a crack and he said that it would be $20 to $60 going at $60 an hour

Holy shit you are stupid.

If you knew how to actually work on things, you would quickly realize how bad this whole idea is. Just because you can (and some cock sucker on the internet did it already) doesn't mean you should.

If you had a proper brake setup on your bike it would work way better than a hacked together disc setup.

The brake you have on your bike has a lot of problems with it already. Crappy lever, cheap cable, crappy brake arms/pads. Then the rim itself seems to be a pained surface. Whereas a machined sidewall would give the pads a better/larger surface to grab onto. for about $60 in parts, your brake could be vastly improved. For $150 it could be tits. Wasting your life trying to put a disc setup on a bmx bike when the entire fucking world tells you no: PRICELESS!

Holy shit? Why so surprise to think that I am stupid about it, I just got on the thread to find out if I can. $150 for tits, that's pathetic. And running your mouth without thinking, is the same as shoving your finger up who evers asshole, and taking that finger in your mouth and calling it chocolate, dosen't give you the priveledge to talk shit about others who you don't really know.
