    Disc caliper adapter for non-disc frame

    I have been trying to locate a disc caliper adapter that will allow you to run disc brakes on a non-disc frame (like a bmx frame or older mtn frame). AtomLab used to make one but in contacting them, the company that made them for AtomLab doesn't make them anymore and they can't tell me if they ever will again. Specialized makes one, but it is specific to thier frame. I need something that is not specific to one brand of frame.

    Does anyone have any ideas on where I could find something like this?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I believe brake therapy makes/used to make something like that.

    Thanks. I called Brake Therapy and they have a bmx adapter in the works but not out yet. Aparently the only company that makes a bmx disc hub is profile and dropping $300 for it isn't going to be easy.

    Here you go

    You need flat drop outs for them to work.

    Help out your lbs; it should be the same price(it was for me).
