    Best Mullet Brake Set-Up(S)

    I currently own a V-Brake only frame (Motobecane Outcast 29er 19') and I intend to keep it that way. I am on my way to purchasing a fork that accomidates only disc brakes. I was wondering what would be a good Mullet Brake set up. Would something like this be overkill?

    No need for hydro's on the rear IMHO , if you want something chi chi in the back try Paul"s .

    those Paul Brakes are pretty light, the fact that you can dial in those brakes with the most precision on a rim brake that i have ever seen is neat. $125 a wheel thought without levers...I'm not sure anymore, because if I'm getting a Paul Brake, I might as well get a Paul Lever, and that'll throw me over the top, but those Magura's are not cheap either...BUT the Magura's do come with a brake and virtually match the lever design of the Hayes Stroker line, which is also neat.

    I don't think you really need seven rotors, though, do you?

    One should be enough.

    Maybe two, if you decide against the whole "mullet" thing.

    really now...hahaha, asthetics are also going to be important to me, do the Hope rotors disperse heat properly (properly being fast/cool fast), are they light, has anybody used them. I remember somebody mentioning to me at my LBS that they have a removable carrier/spider? Does this improve the rotor.....I'm veering way off topic now...
