Does anyone have...

...a disc brake build up that has been documented with pictures? If so I would really like to see it so that I may have something to look through before I attempt an install by myself. Thanks.

its pretty easy if you are set up for it:

disc hubs

IS caliper mounts on fork and rear frame

correct rotor to adapter as needed...if you bought a kit than this shouldn't be a problem

i would just start doing it, don't force anything or do anything else deemed as stupid and ask questions as needed.

you might want to use blue loctite on rotor and caliper mounting bolts and another trick is to put teflon tape under perch mount to allow compensatory rotation in the likely event of a crash on your controls
