Re: rear disk brake
Caliper to chain/sprocket clearance is the biggest hurdle. Getting full pad contact with the rotor is important to get the most from disc brakes. If you can do that and not have interference problems between the caliper and the chain, you're golden.
Good luck. How about sharing your install with some photos of the finished project?
