Just wondering what people feel about v/disc mounts on race/light weight frames. Would you want:

1]Disc mount only.
2]V mount only.
3] Both.

If you could only have disc mounts would that put you off buying the frame?

I just bought a bike with disc only and am very happy with it.
For me with light weight hydraulic brakes like the B4SL just add so much more all round than V's.

Why disc? if u go light with strong brake, u will endo :twisted: the lighter it is and the stronger the brakes and u will forget about the race. My magura hs33 is enough brake for me. i strictly dun recomend front disc brake for front if u on weightweenies.
