    Upgrading 2007 DB Response

    Anyone know if you can upgrade to disc brakes somewhat easily?

    Should be easy on the back, as the frame has mounting posts. Not sure if your current fork has the mounting points. Well worth the upgrade.

    Yeah, thanks for the reply. I'm pretty new to mountain biking and I rode a bike the other day with disc brakes, it wasn't until I started actually riding trails that I noticed the difference. I love the frame, but would like to upgrade what I can on it without spending too much money.

    Right on! I know how you feel! I found a Response XE on CL and paid less than $200 for it. I hate the graphics, but love the bike. I just spent $240 for a new RockShox Sektor TK fork off of ebay. So, I have actually spent more on upgrades than on the bike!

    Not easily, but it can be done... You have to buy the 6 hub disc brake rims.. Thats the expensive part.
    I like to ride my bike.
