[photo=medium]4695[/photo]Hey folks. I’m considering a rebuild of my 2000 Trek 6500ZX. Respectfully I am not looking for the following:

It’s too old
It’s too expensive
It’s not worth it.

This is more a labor of love and interest in learning than a shrewd financial transaction. I am totally new to disc brakes. I know that you need to have the posts, but that is about it. Can you tell me if my fork and most importantly frame are disc ready? I believe that those are the posts for the rotors. Of course I realize that I need/get to get new wheels, etc.

Thanks and excited.

The fork has a bog-standard IS mount for disc brake calipers. Slightly dated design on MTBs, which today favors Post Mounts. But still entirely available. No problem there.
The rear is another thing. You'll need one of these:https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143260207399 to go between.

I need to confess. I just decided to go with the Roscoe 8. Embarrassed as I was totally into it, but then realized the sacrifices and said the hell with it. Probably similar money and I’m turnkey.
