+1... I'm still learning to do that, though (still grab the rear more than the front, hehe
You should also check if your hubs are disc-ready. If you decide to get mechanical discs, you can still use the same brake levers, provided that they are sidepull (v-brakes). I don't think you can use centerpull levers. If it fits your budget, get Avid BB7's. They're the best non-hydraulic discs brakes out there, IMO.
