Hi

I am trying to install disc brakes on my Gary Fisher Tiburon and having a lot of problems figuring out how to attach the rear caliper. There is space for a caliper on the front fork but the rear seems to have nothing. I tried the Trek disco mount adaptor that i thought would work but it didn't fit. Anyone know how to attach disc brakes to the rear?

Here's some photos:





Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Thanks fixbikeguy.

Is it common for a bike to be able to have disc brakes on the front but not on the back? Seems a bit strange to me.
Most mountain bikes have disc brake tabs in the rear, even most entry level MTB's anymore. However the Tiburon is a Hybrid, basically a cross between an mtb and a road bike. It's not uncommon at all for a Hybrid not to have disc tabs in the rear. The Fisher Tib was never intended to have disc brakes, so no mounts. Even the last model, 2010 I think, didn't have em.
