I couldn't find the Highlander on IRO's site but is the Highlander a steel frame? I just got a guy to weld a disc brake mount on an older steel frame I wasn't ready to retire. The whole deal cost me $40.EastCoast said:Ok thanks for that; it makes sense now.
I have an IRO Highlander (no disc mounts) but with disc hubs (got em cheap) so I've been wondering about these sorts of conversions. Given the cost and effort I'll probably wait until the Highlander gives up the ghost and get a Mia or Surly 1x1.
....if we held a gun to your head and forced you to pick one; either the Atomlab or Disc Brake adaptor solution, which one would it be?itsdoable said:Discbrakeadapters.com
Been there too. Worked, with a bit of fiddling, could benefit from a brace as well. Removing the wheel is a bit of a pain (with the AtomLab version too).
It would really depend on the bike, since these adapters don't fit everything. However, if I have my choice, all things being equal.....:Ratman said:....if we held a gun to your head and forced you to pick one; either the Atomlab or Disc Brake adapter solution, which one would it be?
