    Kona Lana'i - Operation Disc Brakes!

    Well for the lonest time I have wanted disc brakes. Ever since I first rode my friends Stinky a few years ago. About a year ago I bought a Kona Lana'i. It didn't have disc brake tabs on the frame so I bought an adapter for the rear, The stock fork did not have disc brake tabs so it was replaced as well with a 100mm fork. So recently I purchased a set of disc rims and the Shimano Deore mechnical caplipers. I had to go out and get a few bolts and the rotors but here is the end result!!!

    Nice job. Where is the disc adaptor from? I have never seen such an adaptor before.

    I found it on ebay surprisingly enough. It works great. It cost around 60 if I remember right.
