Ello Bob,certainly was, took the new bars out for a ride/pint :D been gettin terrible aches n pains from the silly narrow x-lite straits so i put some risers on. I hate the look of risers but i kinda like them on here and they feel great, totally changed the ride, feels like i have a whole new front end. Oh and V's are round wrong way cos the cable is too short until i get a longer one :D anyway quick pic

That kit would look better on a grey F6.

Which coincidentally.....

Wanna swop? (Back for a second try!)

I think you would probably get away with putting a 160 rotor on the front of that, as you have modern parts on it, and leave the rear as V

Looking good. I dunno why but these 16.5" frames seem to suit risers better than the larger frames.

If you want to use discs then you will need to find the clamp on disc mount for the forks and I think there's a specific Hope caliper for it too. Probably easier to just change the forks. There's also a disc mount on the rear so I don't see the point keeping V's on the rear if you are fitting a disc to the front.
Personally, I'd keep the V's and spend the money on some nice wheels instead

I beg to differ.

This wants the full on treatment. Hope C2s or Monos, Pro Class IIs, Red Ti-glides or Bulbs, Red RC45 stem and renthal bars and Middleburn RS7/Royce combo....

Well that's what I was going to do with it, anyway....


:P
