    Question about bike brakes

    Drawbacks of disc brake? Lack of knowledge on how to install them- check Buying cheapest of the cheap because they all look the same- check Back fitting them to a lever not designed for discs (cable only) -check. Lumping all disc brakes in to one pile -check Did i miss anything?
