Default Re: ok guys i need info

I run the basic mechanical Avid disk brakes on my mountain bike and they work great.
If I had only one disk brake, I would definitely mount it on the front - especially on a motorized bike.
Your 86 Univega will require a a disk brake fork with a 1" threaded steerer of 6" long or so.
You will also need to get a front wheel that is disk compatible.
My first mountain bike was an 88 Univega Rover. Your Alpina is lighter because it's made with butted steel.
