  1. Hi there

    i've tried searching but all that returns is peoples bikes with disc brakes or V brakes etc ..

    So my question, my bike has V brakes which clamp onto the rim, do you think i should upgrade the front brake to a disc brake? i'm worried that at travelling at high speeds that the brake pads melt and lock onto the rim of the wheel :p not the most elegant of stops!

    Any suggestions/input?

    Thanks in advanced guys :)

    V-brakes in good condition should work well. I don't think you will go fast enough to melt them...but if you do, assuming you live, I have to know your secret.
