IMG_20131120_094808_811.jpgJust finished the first prototype Front Disk Brake mount for our Mongoose Beast. Whew, lots of problems but it's looking good. Will post some pictures and test report soon. Made a hub adapter to accept brake disk that locates off the hub, then the caliper adapter clamps around the fork tube.

Hi,

I would be interested to see how the brake disc rotor adapter works on the hub. Is that a stock front Beast wheel in the picture?
Would you mind posting a photo of the disc rotor hub adapter?
Do you have extras of this set up for sale?

Thanks!

Hmmm, my previous post did not show up so here we go again?

Is this a stock Mongoose Beast front wheel pic?
How does the disc brake rotor to hub adapter work? Do you have a close up picture of that?

How is testing going?

Do you have an extra set up liek that for sale?

Thanks!

Not sure how their product works. I'm not a bicycle mechanic, so maybe I'm just unfamiliar with 32 spoke hubs. I have the post mount finished and the Shimano hydraulic caliper works without any clearance issues. Will get the camera on it shortly. Always something. The hydraulic line's a bit short. Will have to get familiar with bicycle hydraulic lines now!

Their adapter is one piece. It bolts on the left hub flange with a bunch of small bolts. In order for this to happen, half of the spokes need to be unlaced and replaced with 4mm shorter spokes. Their adapter provides a "new" hub flange where the shorter spokes get laced into.
Too much hassle in my opinion unless you have some really expensive non disc wheels that you are trying to make into a disc wheel.
