    Fuji Nevada 5.0 - need help

    Have a Fuji Nevada 5.0

    I am wanting to upgrade the wheels and brakes. Need a more durable wheel, and would like mechanical disk brakes.

    This bike has a freewheel rear wheel. Is there a wheel/brake/hub out there that will work for this application? or is it not possible?

    Use a disc compatible wheelset , 6 bolt hubs are the most common , brakes are your choise , just match the hubs , centerlock or 6 bolt . You need disc brake mounts on your frame and fork . Do you have disc mounts ?

    What year is the bike? I don't remember a Nevada 5.0 - They have 1,2,3, & 4 though. Some photos will be helpful(non-drive side front and back) or if you can identify the year/model.

    Like AZ.MTNS said, you need disc mounts on the frame and chainstay or seatstay(typically on the seatstay).

    Cool - that is a start. In the 3rd photo, you can see the IS(international standard) disc tabs on the rear non-drive seatstay. You'll need to check and see if you have the disc tabs on the nondrive side, back of the fork leg as well - The fork disc tabs can not be seen in the photos, which means you may or may not have them. You'll have to check on that. If the fork does not have disc tabs, you should save up your money and invest in a new bicycle. Even if the fork does have disc tabs, the money may be better spent on a new bicycle.

    If the fork does not have the disc tabs, you will need a new fork on top of new wheels and brakes to accomplish what you want to do.

    Save your money

    It is not a good idea to upgrade a bike of that level, you could spend a fair amount an still have a very entry level bike. Even the new 2010 Fuji Nevada 3.0 (about $450ish MSRP) would be a huge step up. Save your coin and get a better bike
