Well, I am new to this biking forum, but I am not new to forums so I will try and cut to the point as to avoid upsetting anyone.
To start, I recently started riding my bike hard. Before it was simply a get around, but I have been jumping recently on the track we made in the woods by my house. So I have been getting pretty serious about my bike (in sig). I am basically leaning towards a hyraulic disc in the front, and staying with linear pulls in the rear as I use my front more. First, I have riden cable disc and HATED them with a passion. So if I do discs in the front they are going to be hydraulic. Secondly, I haven't decided to go 160mm or 203mm. Obviously 203 would offer better stopping power, but I am not doing down hill riding so I really don't think I need that much rotor. Thirdly, neither my fork (RST 281 R), nor my front hub are disc compatible. So I was wondering if anyone could give me a list of components I would need to get for just fronts? I know I will need a new hub, fork, rotor, caliper, bracket for mounting and a new lever, but I have no idea on anything else. Also, since my current lever and my gear shift are a single part, I would need a new gear shift as well.
Thanks in advance, Chance.
