    Disc on 06 Hardrock Sport

    Is it possible to use disc brakes on the the stock fork that comes with the 2006 Hardrock Sport (RST Gila T-6)? I've read about the caliper breaking off from the fork from earlier models of the fork because the disc mount isn't strong enough. Is this also true with the 06 model of the Hardrock?

    Also, the stock fork that comes on Hardrock Sport has a 100mm travel. If I were to buy another fork, would it too have to have 100mm travel, or can I get something with more travel?

    Thanks in advance.

    a) yes you can, just don't go bigger than 6"
    b) i'd say stay around the 100mil mark.
