Disc Brake on Twisted Springer front end?
Howdy folks, I got a Lowrider bike with Twisted Springer Front end and am curious if it's possible to add a Disc Brake to this front end.
http://www.bicycledesigner.com/defau...umber%3D513010 is the style I'm refferring to.
As it does not currently have mounting tabs for a disc brake caliper, I'm going to say no to mounting a disc brake on it. That's not to say that you couldn't do it but it will require stripping off the chrome, welding the mounting tabs on, then re-chroming the fork. Probably not worth the effort to you.
The other problem is the fork was not designed to take the loads disc brakes impose. They are different from the loads from rim brakes and the differences are significant.
