Retrofitting disk brakes???
I've been out of MTBs for more years than I want to admit but I'm trying to make the time to get back into it. Right now I'm just logging road miles to get back into shape.
Here's the question. I've got a Cannondale SuperVactive that I built up with XTR components back when I was racing. I think it is from the 2nd yr they built the frame (possibly the first). In any case I'd love to find a way to retrofit disks. I'm 6'4" and at my best race weight I still tipped the scales at 197 and I'm 20 pounds away from that now so stopping always been and will be an issue.
I know that I can change out the fork and get a front fork that will accept disks. C-dale made that option available a long time ago, but is there anything that I can build up to put a disk on the back?
