- Mixing brakes question – will it kill me?
A V-brake on the rim is just another disc really…with a bigger rotor and a smaller pad/caliper
It’s not a drum and therefore the physics would be similar to the front brake
I ran a magura HS33 on the back with a deore disc on the front and it was great for commuting. Never got the chance to run it off-road tho cos someone stripped the frame before I got the chancePosted 5 years ago
I have an old steel Kona Cindercone frame and some nice late forks, I am going to build up a bulletproof Bikepacker from the parts bin, all seems in order except for the brakes.
The frame is v-brake only but the forks are disc, if I use the discs up front and the v-brakes on the back will I die?Posted 5 years ago
