    Disc Brake Conversion of a Trek Carbon Y11

    So i was just wondering how easy/difficult it would be convert my 1997 Trek Carbon Y11 to have disc brakes instead of the V-Brakes that are currently on it. I would much rather have the stopping power of disc brakes than having to constantly adjust the pads for the V-brakes.
    Thanks to anyone that can help me out.

    There are a few rear design which one do you have?

    A2Z offers the adapter but does not fit all. Braketherapy definitely would fit but gotta make sure you have the right fitting for the hub. Post your pic.
