    Brake adapter question

    I知 looking to mount a Hayes rear disk on my C'Dale killer V 700 hardtail. Has anyone ever seen a bolt on disk brake mount for this frame? I know they used to be offered for other frames on the market. Thanks in advance

    If it has a flat dropout, check ebay there is a guy there selling adaptors for any frame w/ flat drops for $50. I just bought one, but it hasn't come in yet so I can't attest to how well it works (figured it was worth the gamble).

    Cannondale is pretty adamant that frames without disc tabs are not stressed for disc brake use.There are several adapters on the market but I'd think twice about using them on an aluminum frame.It will definitley void your warrenty.Its for this reason that I'm using V's on my F series C'Dale.Don't want to take a chance on breaking a chainstay.
