Avid Mechanical Disc Brakes have just caught my eye for the first time. They seem to get good reviews at mtbreview.com. I had thought about purchasing my 2002 Trek 4500 with disc brakes already installed but I couldn't afford it at the time. I still want the advantage that disc brakes give when braking in wet weather.
Pricepoint has Avid Mechanical Disc Brakes for $69.99 and they now seem within my reach. I have read on this forum that my Trek 4500 has provisions for front disc brakes, but not for the rear. So here we go............
2002 Trek 4500........is this a worthwhile upgrade (front disc brakes only)?
How hard is the installation? I love stuff like this
Do I need ANYTHING ELSE besides what the package comes with?
(Website says the package includes caliper and disc, compatible with regular linear pull levers and standard brake cables. (51mm adapter is included).
