Installing Disc Brakes
So I was thinking of buying a disc brake for a 24" Uni, but was wondering what all was involved with the installation. Would I need a different hub or frame? Before I buy a disc brake (I was thinking of the one from UDC called 43" Bengal Helix 1.1 Disc Brake White for $160.00) I want to know what I am getting involved in price and work-wise.
Thank you in advanced for helping.

UDC is supposed to release a steel spindled disc compatible hub in the next six months, not sure about adapting a frame for disc brakes, but it's certainly possible. Probably be cheaper and easier to buy a new frame since these will liekly be available when the hubs are released.
There is also a crank mounted disc brake system, do a search for more details.
