Hey guys. I am going to be purchasing a new bike this week - it's a great deal on a great bike - BUT...
it comes with hydraulic disc brakes. I don't think i'm up for the maintenance on hydros, and i'd prefer mechanical.
My question is: Is it worth the money to replace the hydros with mechs just to save me trouble later on down the road?
Also, anyone have an idea of what a shop would cost to do the work? I dunno if i'm confident with dismantling the hydraulic system and replacing it with the mechanic disc system. Anyone have exp with this and know how much of a PIA it would be?
