Hi All

My first post here so hi all.

I have had my Specialized Stumpjumper FSR XC since new in 1998 (might be the 1999 model but I can't remember exactly). Still a daily rider and I love it loads but feel a brake upgrade is on the cards. It has Avid V's currently but also has disc tabs and I would be keen to know if it is worth changing the wheels and getting a disc setup. If yes, then what do you recommend as a high quality setup. Don't mind spending a bit as the bike is so cool and still a keeper.

Many thanks.

Gareth

Most cost effective upgrade would be a set of Maguras... These mount on the existing bosses and you can use your existing rims.

Thanks for the answer, I was not aware of Magura but a neat idea. Not sure it appeals, think I would prefer the disc option but will consider it further.
