Re: MB Poll #2
I lean toward disc brakes over the others. The stopping power is there when you need it. I have no experience with the hydraulic version but a few members swear by them. Cable operated has sufficed for me.
Two of my bikes came with front disc brakes and I installed them on another one. I had to weld on a caliper mount to the fork on that one. Avid is a good brand and is a quality made product. Remember, the larger the rotor diameter the better the stopping power. Go as big as you can fit.
