    Front Rear Brakes

    V's or Discs, is there a difference. I know kona's using his front on his rear. I want to make my dj bike a bit more trial like (for the hell of it) and wonder if I can move my single digit 5's (front) onto the rear of my bike.

    Actually, I have a new brake on the front primarily because the old rear brake broke.

    You'll need some new housing and the right adapters. Also a new cable because the front is probably not the right size.

    So my front can go there? What do you mean the adapters? The steel/aluminum tube?

    calipers can go either with the proper adaptor.
    lever bodies can go either
    hoses/cables CAN but shouldn't due to length.
