Just curious about something as the season kicks in. I am an XC racer/rider and still really love the feel of a light, snappy hardtail. I have dumped a little money into a new fork and have my bike up and running well. My question is with regards to disc brakes or the cost/benefit of switching. I have looked into prices and by comparison to linear pull mechanical brakes the cost seems to be pretty extensive. Here is my current setup breakdown pertaining to brakes. I am currently running Avid Single Digit SL's, XTR levers, and Crossmax Ceramics (older). I have them about as dialed in as possible, though the ceramic coating on the wheels is starting to wear noticeably and am torn on the costs to just get new wheels vs. getting discs and starting from scratch. What am I looking at for like to like conversion? Anyone run high end components and run into a similar issue? Weighing my options (no pun intended). Thank you all in advance for your replies.
