    05 Cove Stiffee FR - Disk Brake Advice

    Just bought the Cove Stiffee FR frame and in the process of building up the frame with some component from old bike. Current bike will be setted up with rim brake while waiting to get Disk Brake system.

    I have a question, will a mechanical disk brake go enough power to stop the bike. I mainly used for trail or XC usage. But might go to North SHore one a while for the fun. Any advise??

    yes a good mechanical disk brake will stop just about any bike used for trail or xc...i recommend the Avid BB7's feel and power of disks without the price tag
