[QUOTE=fuzzball;120254]I like the front disc brake. Can't see it real clearly, but looks like it's drilled for heat dissapation. Did you add this to your existing front wheel, or is the whole assembly new?. I'd like to add some kind of front brake. My old Schwinn only has the stock coaster brake.

Depending on your needs and budget an alternative is a NOS Schwinn front caliper brake adapter Look on eBay. About $12.00 I think minus shipping. Along with a wide reach bmx type caliper (bikeworldusa has them) it works well. I've done it to four old Schwinns. It is the least expensive way to go, but not as good as drum or disc for sure.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
