    To brake or not to...

    What are the advantages of Disc Brakes as opposed to factory brakes. ive seen alot of adds for brakes containing disc rotors, are they hard to install?

    Thanks!

    The "Not a Happy Camper Thread" over here has morphed into a discussion about discs.

    In short, better braking, especially in wet and muddy conditions. More expesive, less maintenance, heavier. These are all generalizations by the way.

    As far as installation - I can't answer that one, but you have to have the proper hubs and frame/fork mounts to make the switch.
