Hi there,

I have wanted a Tioga Disk Drive since I started biking in '92 but could never afford one. Now that I have the money I cannot do without disk brakes. Does anyone know if a disk drive can be built up using a disk hub? If so does anyone have one for sale.

Cheers,

Macscheen

Dont know how well these work but if you build using an xt or xtr these might work (off ebay.com)

Why would it be a disastor?

Would the force of the brake destroy the wheel?

to be fair I've never seen a disc brake set up on a disc drive so I dont know how well it would handle. I have seen a sram disc hub built onto a disk drive, so at least its possible. personally I'd save the disc drive for retro (light!) useage & use more conventional (reliable!) spokes with the disk brake wheel.

Hmmm, it's just something I really want to do!!

I ride a pretty bling bike but really want to add a retro feel to it - www.macscheenracing.com/Whiteley_Weekender_2006_019.jpg

I would imagine that it wouldn't last too long with my 15 stone bulk on top of it....!!

you'd be nuts to add a disc drive to that.

dunno, a disk drive would add extra suspension to match the frame/forks/seatpost? all that would be missing then would be a flexi stem :lol:

only joking, it's lovely bike & I'm jealous! - some spinergy type wheels would look cool, not sure if you can get them disc compatible tho
