is there any way to mount disc brakes to 20 inch front wheels. I've got a couple on my tadpole that I would like to put disc brakes on. I was wondering if it was possible to build some kind of adapter for mounting the disc brake onto the axel. thanks mark

The axle doesn't turn, so you have to mount the disc to the hub. Unless you're using rear wheels with freewheel threads, I don't know how you'd go about this.

There are links in the "New Here" thread for the Streetfox. They're on page 2, and contain links for inexpensive rear wheels, calipers, adapters and discs, and epoxy for securing the adapters to the hub.
