How can I convert my 05 Bianchi Axis to Disc brakes. Forget cost for a moment. Is it possible? If so, how?
Also, I'm 230 and I put a rack and carry bag on the back. All told, there must be about 200lbs (including my weight) on the back wheel when I am loaded for my commute. I'm running the stock 38c cross tires at max (75psi) pressure. The tire definitely pancakes out a bit more than I am used to. I feel like if I used a tire that could handle higher pressure, but is still relatively wide, I'd be set for loaded touring. Does this tires exist?
Any suggestions? Am I going to destroy that beautiful rear wheel?
