Need new brakes
I want to change my bontrager hubs (front 24 rear 28 holes) V brakes. For some new mechanical disc brakes but I am haveing some dificulty finding new hubs that fits my rims. Could you please let me know where can I get (24,28) disc hubs and what mechanical disc brakes recomend me to use with shimano xtr Vbrake gruppo?
Thanks and sorry for my poor english skils...
Just get new wheels.....
By the time you buy new hubs and spokes your rims aren't worth saving. I don't think a 24 spoke disk hub is available.

makes good wheelsets (in Florida) and might speak spanish, which I presume is your first language.
As for a mechanical disk brake which works with an XTR combo the best available is probably AVID. I believe Shimano also has mechanical disk brake
I had some very good tabasquenio friends back at the University.
Your best bet is to dump the hubs and rims. Sell them off like a complete wheelset.
You'd rather go up to 32 spokes and lace the spokes with a 3 cross pattern. It will make a extremely durable wheelset.
Get a set of ****mano (obviously misspelled) Deore XT hubs (six bolts!!!) and some Mavic rims.
If you're in the US, get the Avid mechanicals which would work wonders and will require less parts to change.
If you're in mexico, contact viansi.com and get some Hayes HMX-1 or Benotto for a set of Deore mechanicals (BR-M515 LA). Be warned! The Hayes are inconsistant (you can get a very good or very poor set) and the Deores are a phenomenal set of brakes but they're heavy as hell.
If you want to import them, contact Larry Mettler at mtnhighcyclery.com or Chad at redbarnbicycles.com. You just can't go wrong with them and get the Avid Mechanicals (now BB7). The Avids are top notch regarding mechanicals. I had used them extensively and can tell you that those are simple, indestructible, powerful and easy to modulate.
Really, sell your wheels off and get a 32 spokes wheel. Disc brakes must be laced 3X.
Send me a Personal message (PM) or an email and will give you more data.
