Just starting to build my own bike and I'm just curious if anyone has any comments on a front disc brake and rear v-brake setup on a bike.
Here's the setup I plan to use:
Front: XT disc hub w/Mavic 317 using Avid mechanical
Rear: XT hub w/Mavic 519 using XT V-brakes
Few reasons why I'm doing this:
-In cars, the front wheels do most of the braking, so I assume that holds true for bikes and that's why the disc setup in the front.
-Since the rear brakes easily locks up if brake lever is pulled hard enough, I can save $$$ and weight by using v-brakes on the rear.
-The disc setup makes the bike look better.
Anyone have any comments on this setup? Any reasons why I shouldn't go along with this?
