I feel almost silly asking, but are these frames disc brake compatible? if not, what is the place holders for?

yes, it's the early hayes type, i think you can still get an adaptor to convert it to international standard. think it was a2z components that make it.

Be aware that using one of those 22mm to IS disc adaptors will mean you need to up the rotor size by 20mm .This also effectively means you need a caliper for a 140mm/145mm rotor because anything else will be too big. Also the A2Z adaptor leaves quite a large gap that needs shimming out using a washer thats about 3-4mm thick.

I built this for a mate and encountered both the above problems.

Just so I'm clear, if I add this adapter...I will need a rotor that is 140/145mm in size? So a 160mm or 180mm will NOT work? I currently don't have discs on it, so I will be purchasing a new set for it. Just want to be sure I get the right size/setup.
