    Disassembly/reassembly is totally do-able. Just take your time, ziplock bag and label everything that you are unfamiliar with, take pictures if you have to and it should go fine.

    I assume you're talking rotor size. Size you can go is dictated by the adapter, not frame or fork mounts. Frame and fork mounts, even if they are post/direct mounts are almost always sized for 6" - -...
