How to Convert Front V-Brake to Disc?
I bought a 2000 Gary Fisher Wahoo really cheap ($60) a few months ago. I would like to do a number of things to it, & one of those things is convert the front brakes to disc. I would do front & back but I've heard converting the back is very expensive, & I hardly ever use the back brakes so screw that. Now, I understand that I will need new rims & a new fork that are disc brake compatible. This's fine, as the rims are cheap & the fork is rigid so they need replacing anyway. So can anyone tell the/point me in the direction of a tutorial for converting the front end to disc brakes? Also, what sort of price range am I looking at here? If there's already a topic about this, please post a link & begin flaming, but I was unable to find one.
