I did it today. I no longer am considering a disk setup. :ugh2:
I did it too. But I have a bad set of vees. It does help indeed. But standard cheap vee brake pads gets torn to shreds by the grinds...
It might tear up your pads faster, but the reliability is soooo much nicer.
A rider here in Dallas had a grind on his front rim and still sings praises about switching to front disc. You ought to try it.
yea i use dual disc and i don't have to grind anything, tar anything. i just go and ride. its good times
i ground my rim, and then i got an avid mech. disc is superior
then I will take your old lever for the front
haha, ill keep that, you can have the whole thing in about a month, as i ordered a juicy.
Yess! that's awesome. Just in time for new frame
definately... i hope my zoo fork doesnt go "kersplat" haha, they seem to do really well though...
disk = bling
its like a king headset. not realy that required.
yea, the juicy is really the epitome of disc brakes though, and its nice.
i just cant justify the cost of a disk setup now. New front hub, forks and disk brake.
Hahaha nice try dave... your gunna have to grind or tar that front rotor soon... if it doesn't stop being so :joshers:
I don't agree with this statement. I would say a disc is like a King rear hub. Its not required, but it is a major improvement over the other alternatives.
I ran an HS-33 with a grind on the front of a mod and I hated it. I had to regrind more often in the front then the rear because I like to modulate the front brake. Also, I went thru brake pads quickly in the front.
How about a set of lightweight Vees or maggies, and some SKILL.
Sorry, that's not directed at anyone, but seriously so many people put so much value into their parts, and all they need to do is RIDE.
pancho , i know for a fact your refering to me..haha, its okay, because its true, but i work in a bike shop, and i dont get a paycheck.
v-brakes work very well on the front end, many good riders use them, but discs are just nice.
yea discs aren't necessary by any means. i've run maguras with like 6 differnet pads, vbrakes, whatever.
they all work. different pros and cons but everything works...
i just like my discs because i'm too damn lazy to grind
v-brakes front and back on my pure.
