other solutions include:

a neat mod that is almost identical to the onza style which works to the same principle as the Specialized disc adapter. distributing the force of braking up to the vbrake boss.
running v brakes on the rear isnt uncommon, i ran disc up front and magura rim brake out back. worked fine, but i had a sharkfin sitting in my box that begged setting up (after a mammoth amount of searchign and waiting for one)..... things we do for our bikes...:roll:
