    Can you fit disc brakes to Suntour SF13-NEX-P-MLO-700c-50 forks?

    There are what seems to be some type of mounts there however unsure whether these are actually designed as such and whether there are adapters available.

    I'm going to say no, because this fork has tabs like I've never seen before!

    Usually they will both look like the lower tab (old forks) or they'll both be like the tab above it (current bikes) but you've got some weird mix going on there. What is that about? I've never seen any disk-mount that would fit on there.

    Whatever they are, they ain't disk mounts.

    To fit disks you'd also need new wheels as well as the brakes themselves. To be honest you'd be better selling the bike and buying another one rather than sinking all that money into this bike.

    Thanks guys, pretty bizarre indeed, I was thinking of machining up an adapter or something myself but seems like more work than just selling the old girl and buying a new rig.

    Unless you're riding terrain the bike was never designed for disk brakes would make very little difference anyway.

    I think the upper mounts are for a rack. If the frame has disc mount you could get wheels, breaks, and a fork with disc mount
