    Disc Brake Adapter for Frame?

    I am looking to convert my circa 1996 Diamondback to SS, but the frame does not have disc mounts. Are any type of adapters available and does anyone have recommendations?

    Mullett is when you run Vee brakes out back and disc in front. It works great.

    mullet as above or good v-brakes all round

    the adapters that bolt up to the v-brake posts & run down the seatstay are absolutely horrendous in my opinion

    My riding partner who posts here under the name "Brewsome" just built up a Gary Fisher hardtail and used one of these adapters. It is a pretty decent looking set up.

    This thread shows an adapter made by Trek. I don't know if it would fit on your frame or not, but it is a pretty decent looking adapter. Brewsome has a picture of the adapter he used on his bike in the thread also. The adapter Brewsome used does not require a boss on the top of the seat stay like the Trek adapter. I think it would be pretty universal.

    If you have questions I will tell Brewsome about this thread and he will chime in.
