- Can I adapt my 1997 P7 to run discs?
Crikey £50 to weld a disc mount on not including the mount!
where in the country are you ? I had a mount welded onto an aluminium frame a few years ago at Chris Marshall cycles in Keighley (yorkshire) for £45 including the mount from Hope this included heat treating too, it can't have gone up by much if you're near give him a call 01535691073.Posted 8 years agotog575Member
I asked Orange about this and they said welding something onto the frame would weaken it as it has been heat treated or something. A2z adapters don't fit say woollyhat shop- the only other option was a woodman disco, which uses the existing brake post and dropout. very expensive. A nice set of v brakes do a pretty good job thoPosted 8 years agotandemwarriorsMember
Other alternative is the old style Hope universal caliper that bolts into the dropout with a hollow bolt
It then runs a torque arm up to the brake boss. It only runs a 155mm disc but I used it on my X2 then P7. Works best with a Hope hub because it needs a modified axle.
Have it all sitting in the garage if you're interested.
