Conversion to disc brakes
Rather than try to figure it all out in this thread, I thought I'd pose this question in a new thread.
I'm considering converting what will be my winter commuter to disc brakes for wet weather stopping ability. I'm considering either going to front disc, rear internally geared hub with drum brake, or front disc/rear disc.
The bike I'll be converting is a Trek 830 mountain bike, with lawyer tabs on the front fork-- disc tabs would have to be welded on. Is front disc & rear drum the way to go, or would front & rear disc be better?
Basically, what should I know/think about in planning a conversion like this?
