    need help with rear disk brake information

    I got my MTB a few years ago and i got out of it, but im getting back into it and i see some people with disk brakes front and rear, my bike came with Promax disk brakes in front. I want to put disk brakes in back, not the hydraulic ones but hte ones that are cable powered. I am not sure how or if i can even do this. Is there some special thing with disk brakes in the rear? I need information basically

    Does your bike have the bracket for mounting disc brakes on the back?

    Before you start spending money, consider this:

    Go get your rear disc brake to work, you are going to have to take a bicycle frame, rear wheel, frame adapter, probably a caliper adapter, and disc brake assembly that were all made by different manufacturers and get them all to line up and work together. Everything might bolt right into place the first time, but I doubt it.

    Well, im kind of new at this thing, I like the challenge of putting it all together, ive had a bike just never thought of really changing anything on it untiul a few months ago, there is a bike service shop nearby so if i have issues they are there and can do it. I am not sure what the bracket to mount disk brakes looks like, can somebody provide it with a picture?
