I have been running V brakes (Avid Ti) on my old Gunnar frame. The frame is V brake only and the factory will not add disk mounts to old frames. I only weigh 130lb and the Vs work fine. But this last race was lots of mud and rain. The rear brake went south and broke. Now I need to replace it. So I am shopping for a new rear V brake.
So I realized I could buy a new rear for around $30-40 and be done. Or I could take the opportunity to upgrade to disk front. I would put my front V on the rear. I figure I could find a used BB7 really cheap and a disk ready front wheel used. Front wheels donít take as much abuse so good used ones arenít too hard to find around here. They are often cheap if they donít have a matching rear to make a set. So I figure it would cost maybe a extra $100 but should work better in the rain/mud and on long fire road down hills. Any opinions or advice?
