    Couple of Brake Upgrade Questions

    Forgive me if this is obvious stuff but i was wondering -

    1. Can i upgrade my front shimano deore hydraulic disc rotor (which is a 160mm rotor) to a 180mm rotor on the front without any change?

    2. Can i upgrade an old frame with canti mounts and upgrade them to V-brakes?

    thanks!

    Pete

    Hi Marinti, Thanks for your reply - that was fast! I assume you need an adapter to redress the larger diameter of the rotor so it aligns correctly on the pads?

    edit - found what i need! thanks!
