Swaping out Discs for cantilevers
I'm loking at buying a X bike with disc brakes primarily for commuting purposes however, I'd like to have the option to try X racing. I hear discs aren't allowed in races and have heard it's simply a matter of swapping the brake types.
How involved is it to switch the two types of brakes? if it's a lot of work I might forgo the dics. Though I'd really like to have them for commuting...
