hey guys i am thinking about buying the base model 08' rockhopper. i cant afford the upgrade to disc brakes at the moment...but in the future how much do you think it would cost me to purchase and install avid bb5's or 7's?
I bought a '05 RH base. After a season of riding I upgraded to Juicy 5 disc brakes. The upgrade cost me $200; pretty much just for the brakes.
I bought disc ready wheels (used) online and sold the stock ones at the same price. Same goes for the shifters.
