I'm currently running a U-Brake on my 32. It mounts on the same studs for V-Brakes on a 36 inch frame.

The disc is nice because it is very progressive in the way it grabs, a rim brake can be a bit too much; however, it has a lot of tuning/detuning that discs don't have. Maggies are the only brake that I have which I don't really like. They are either on or off, and not much room for detuning (without mismatching levers/calipers).
