    what are disc options on a frame w/ hayes mounts?

    my 2001 homegrown frame has "hayes mounts". at least that's what i've been told. the holes drilled for the rear disc caliper are about an inch apart and are on the chainstay. do these sound like "hayes mounts" and if so what are my options for disc brakes?

    thanks,

    Those are 22mm mounts aka parallel mounts.,
    http://www.discbrakeadapters.com/

    they have parallel mount converters to IS $23 , as well as some other nice pieces that you can use.

    depends on your frame

    the previous post was correct, there are adapters, but not for all frames. my 2001 klein for example can take ONLY the 22mm hayes hydros, the space where the mount is was too tight for an adapter.

    best bet is to call schwinn (do they still exist under that name?) and ask them for a recommendation.
