    Hey guys, just wondering how I can tell what type of disk I have, Ive heard you need a disk from a newer alloy wheel if your mounting an old spoked wheel on newer forks that came with cask alloy wheels.

    And personally, I think the old disks and braking calipers are uglier then shit, Sooo, im wondering if anyone has sorted this brembo business. I remember a post about someone making a mount for a brembo caliper, what type of disk would I need then? and if anyone could recall that post that would be great.

    Also!, after reading that post about the brembo retro fit, I remembered trying to find that gold caliper on ebay as was stated it could be found in the thread. I had no such luck.

    So what im wondering is if a bunch of people have done that mod yet, hows it look/feel? and how expensive was it.
