Hello, my name is Steffen Root, co-owner of Berkshire Bike and Board here in Great Barrington, Massachusetts and we're going to be talking about how to mount disc brakes to a titanium mountain bike. Here we have a titanium mountain bikes with traditional v brakes and, what we want to do is mount a disc brake and so right now, this titanium mountain bike does not have a place to mount them. So what we need to do is have a disc tab welded to this frame. Once you have found a manufacturer or a welder to weld a disc tab onto your titanium mountain bike it will look a lot like this. So, once we have this disc tab, now we can mount a disc brake. We will need a disc brake. We will also need a wheel that is disc compatible. 'Cause on a traditional rim where the rim is the braking surface, we need a place to mount the disc. Therefore we need to get a disc specific hub to mount the rotor to. You will need a hub set that has the disc compatibility which is the six holes so therefore the rotor can be mounted to the hub. So that is what you need to do to install disc brakes on a titanium mountain bike. My name is Steffen Root, co-owner of Berkshire Bike and Board.
