    I'm looking to add disc brakes to the front...
    It's a OCC schwinn chopper

    My plan... take some bicycle disc brakes ( probably some Avid BB5's ) and lace a wheel using a mountain bike disc hub.
    then, to attach the brake i was going to use a brake adapter that is available from most bike shops and drill two holes into the fork and mount it that way...

    I know the wheel and the brakes will be strong enough, but i am not sure of the way i am mounting them.

    Any suggestions?

    not sure that I have the exact picture going on here
    a little concerned regarding the two holes to be drilled into fork
    realizing that you have to be able to attach somewhere though

    must say -- seems to be a good idea
    I enjoy those disc brakes a lot
    pads seem to be long lasting also

    ride that good breaking MB THING
