Need help with coverting fixie to disc SS.
« on: March 06, 2017, 12:15:03 AM »
I got this Haro Projekt that I love... except for the brakes.  I really want to slap on disc brakes on it. It's actually a fixed gear with a free wheel option but with my riding style and preference it's always on free wheel. There's a good number of places I want to ride this bike at but the current clamp brakes just doesn't provide me with enough confidence to take it there. I've considered taking it to a shop and have it welded/modify but... bummer, an accessible bike frame builder isn't easy to find, much less a reputable one.

So, I saw something like this... (attachments 1 & 2). Would this work on my horizontal slider (attachment 3)?

The sliding adaptors would set me back around $65 (shipping included), is this a viable alternative? Please note that I still need to get a disc compatible fork, hubs, rims(?) and a set of hydraulic brakes.
