Retro fitting rear disk brake

Postby mitchj » Fri Nov 18, 2016 5:42 pm

G'day all, I'm wondering if anyone has fitted a rear disk calliper to a MTB using one of those brackets that hook over the axel inside the dropout, & clamp onto the seat stay? If so, was it any good?

G'day antigee, I didn't realise there were things available to put disk brakes on an ordinary frame till a few days ago, so I ordered a cheapie. Since then, I've read about the A2Z on other forums, & it sounds like they're good. If my cheepie is rubbish, (i.e. I get what I paid for...) I might give one a go.
