Hey guys and girls.
I recently picked up an 08 Redline Moncog SS and i am falling in love with it. I am kind of a safety nut and think that upgrading to a set of front and rear disk brakes would be a good first upgrade for the bike. My first question would be, How can i go about determining what set of Disk breaks will fit onto my bike. The upgraded version of my bike, the Monocog flight comes stock with AVID BB5 Disc Brakes. Because this is the same frame, does this mean i can just buy any set of bb5s and have my LBS install them, or are there precise measurements that enable or restrict the ability to fit a Disk brake set up. If any body can point me in the right direction on determining how to fit my bike with a pair of disk brakes id appreciate it. I would like to get them online and have my LBS install them.
I dont know if this will help or not but here are the specs for my bike.
