After a hydraulic front disk brake for my ghetto freeride build...... Got a rotor so just need the caliper and lever with hose. Has to be cheap i'm afraid cos i'm a bit skint! But W.H.Y?
Might also consider a front + rear if you have a pair that you don't want to split?
Anything considered!

Thanks!

Sorry didn't ever get into disks enough to understand terminology. Do you require it to fit to mounts brazed on to the fork? I have a Hope hydraulic that clamps to the fork via a circular clamp. Any good?

That might do the job, although I do have disk mounts so i'm wondering if it fits to the standard caliper lugs with the bracket removed or something?

Sorry, no they don't. I know this because I tried to do just that when I bought new forks with the appropriate mount. I didn't fit and according to the lad in the shop it would cost a fortune to make it fit, and anyway why would anyone want to ride with anything so old and uncool and he could sell me some new radical knarly ones. (Sorry about the lack of punctuation, but that's how he spoke!) I bought a set of HS33's from a different shop. For the record they fit Rock Shox Judy's.
