    Disc Brakes - any Implications for Spoke Lights ?

    I have a MTN bike and a Road bike and i'm thinking about picking up a Cyclocross or Cyclocross-Style bike.

    I would use the Cyclocross-Style bike for my night riding in the city, and i would move my lights onto it.

    I never had disc brakes before but i am considering them now, except that i have very big spoke lights on both front and rear wheels ( MonkeyLectric M232 on the front, and Bike After Dark Fireball MK3 on the rear ) and i am wondering if disc brakes would make any difference ?

    i personally cannot think of how it could possibly matter, but as i said, i never had disk brakes myself so ...

    this isn't a cons / pros of disc brakes thread - i know there is already a million of those on the net - i'm only specifically asking if this could possibly have any impact on spoke lights ?

    Just make sure they don't hit the brake calipers.
    Ride more!
