Default Re: Is there a go-to thread for what you'll need for a build?

The tophat adapter combines the disc and sprocket mount on the same hub. It is by far the best way to get disc brakes on the rear if you want to buy the adapter. As Crassius said, discs are not absolutly needed. Good V-brakes work just fine, as does a disc front/Vbrake rear setup. Discs are simply the next level if you can afford it.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
