    looking to upgrade to disc, 06 specialized

    I have a 06 specialized hardrock sport with v brakes, I'm thinking of getting some disc brakes. My frame and forks have the mounts but will I have to buy new rims? The rims are stock alex rims hr26.

    Think it would be a bit expensive to have to upgrade rims plus disc brakes.

    You'll need a wheelset with hubs that are disc compatible , either 6 bolt hubs or centre lock hubs so that you can attach the discs to them.

    Rear Centre Lock Hub:http://www.harborcountrybike.com/PhotoDetails.asp?ShowDESC=N&ProductCode=HU0767
    or
