- Converting my old road frame to a disc version.
Im toying with the idea of converting my old road frame to a disc version.
The frame is knackered – old PX Rt57 carbon- it’s travelled the world with me in a box, but with 2 holes in the chainstays (chainsuck damage), a damaged rear dropout, and worn out rims it’s time for a change.
The bike will be ridden on long rides all over the world again, so I’m considering something with discs and bigger tyre clearance. I have a set of tubeless 29er wheels, my old SRAM Rival groupset, and I’m considering a Ti Pickenflick frame.Posted 1 year ago
Will 28/32mm tyres work ok tubeless on 29er rims?breatheeasyMember
If its standard road wheels then they are 130mm across – disk wheels are 135mm so you could be in trouble from the start.
Then presumably you’re thinking off gluing a disk mount onto the chain stay?
If its like my old PX carbon frame then 32mm tyres will be a squeeze too.
Too much fafffage for my liking. Just buy a new frame designed for disks.Posted 1 year ago
