Thinking that my hybrid would not be upto much cop around the track (i.e. the wheels may be a bit fragile and the brakes a bit crap?)

Trying to work out if I can use MTB disc wheels on my 700cc hybrid Scott Sportster P3 (2008 model) for this event. (Borrowed from cyfa).

My frame has disc tabs back and front, and I reckon enough space for for the wheels physically. My concern I think is whether the reduction in height would make my cranks/pedals ground out?

12th sounds like a good crack for my first outing. Could bring some bits to sell/trade. :idea:

Thinking about it still. Really depends if my wife is gonna be working or not so I wouldn't want to pin any hopes on me as such.
