    Update on the FX with Deore disc brakes. After building up some new wheels and riding the bike for 3
    months I thought I would let every one know that I like the deore mechanical disc brakes and have
    not had any of the problems that others on the list have had.The only problem I had was finding a
    40mm front rotor for the 16" wheel.The deore brakes only come with 60mm front and rear.I found a co
    that was selling the cheaper grimica disk brakes for 25 bucks and noticed that the front grims came
    with a 40mm rotor[YES]. Anyway I find the brakes to be just fine.Easy to adjust,No drag and powerful
    stopping ability[will lock up the wheels].I paid 48 bucks per brake so for anyone contemplating
    going with mech disc's this system is a option.Check out my wheels with deore front hub and JU JU
    rear hub that I laced up. Address is http://community.webshots.com/album/65673743TRajYa
