    another disc brake question

    Can I get a disc on my bike? Front or back is okay. I have been searching, but am not sure I understand how you can get this to work on a track bike without a flip flop hub. Also, I don't understand how the brake would attach. Maybe it is not the way to go, but if I don't have to drill, maybe it is an option? A link or anything would be cool. Thanks.

    You mean ... a disc brake hub used as fixed hub?

    Or if you mean, a real brake on your track bike, umm doubtful unless you get a new fork which would most likely have to be custom made unless you wanted to totally eff your geometry.

    you need a new fork... It'll be a lot easier to just get one with a caliper hole.
