    Convert Rim Brake Wheel into a Disk Break set up

    Hi,

    I have a Mavic CrossMax UST tubeless that Squeal a lot with rim brakes, is there a way to change it to have disk brakes, if its possible what would I need to do, what would I need to look for on the wheel to see if this was possible.

    How much would it cost and what should I buy.

    How old is that crossmax it may be disc ready, you want to look at the hub if there are 6 holes on the left side. Pic can help too. If you have a disc ready hub, all you have to do is get the disc brake system and you are gold.

    CrossMax Wheel Hub

    It doesn't look like it has any hole on it and in fact it is kinda hard to see but it looks like the plastic is broken off a little, is that a bad thing should I fix it, what would that cost.

    Could I change that part to make it something that could have disk mounts.

    I'm not sure of the year model.

    If you have an old crossmax, it would not take disc then, you may have to get a new wheelset. Mavic Crossride, or crossland are reasonable price. You'd also need disc brake.

    There's nothing that you can do to convert the non-disc hub to disc hub.
