Front Disc Brake Cruiser
I have a CH80 on a cruiser bicycle with a Bendix (coaster) rear brake only. Well that crapped out on me today, so Ive started considering brakes. I have a mountain bike that I dont ride anymore and it not only is a quick release with a nice hub, it has a disc rotor. So now im thinking that im going to weld up a mount for the caliper and put my front disc brake setup on there. Is this do-able? Is there a reason that I shouldn't use that wheel? The rotor barely clears the fork, and I noticed that the dropouts are much thinner on my cruiser fork than on my mountain bike fork, but it tightens down alright... Any thoughts?
I really want to put a suspension fork on my cruiser. Anyone done it?
