    Suggestions and ideas for budget rebuild on 2004-2005 schwinn high timber

    I'm considering overhauling my worn out 05 high timber to get it back into action. the frame is great, the wheels are good, but shifters, chain and gears, and brakes are crap. the fork is junk too. My budget is $300ish and i'm ok with doing my own work. I'd like to upgrade it to a 27 speed, and have a good front shock on it. also, could I convert it to disk brakes? Everything (wheels, shocks, shifters, all of it) is stock at this point.

    craigslist and/or ebay might be your best bet. yet you can convert to disk brakes, it's just going to cost a bit more and i would suggest avid or hayes mechanical. you'll have to find disk compatible hubs for sure and i would highly recommend having a professional build the rims if needed. if the frame doesn't have caliper tabs you can get an adapter but it in it's self might break your bank.
