I have an old mountain frame, and I am interested in fitting it with 700cm wheels. I know the wheels will fit with plenty of clearance for tires, etc. My problem is brakes. The frame and fork are not disk compatible. They have cantilever posts, but I can't get enought reach from my current cantilever set up to reach a 700cm rim. Does anyone know of a solution?
Do linear pull brakes have a larger range on where you can set the pads?
Can I mount a road style caliper? The frame and fork are drilled where you would expect a caliper to mount. I think reflectors were mounted there when I purchased the bike.
Thanks in advance for any info.
The frame: a 1992 scott 4130 frame with horizontal drops, 130mm rear spacing, and a 1" headtube.
