Forks, Brakes and Tyres
4 March 2013 / Posted by Max Anthony
Hi all, I found the facebook then found the forum here. I'm building a gravity bike and want to know if the disc style brake is really a must? Or can I have two regular Caliper brakes (front+back) doing the job?
Also what kind of forks could I get that would run a disc brake up front and still fit into a schwin bmx bike? And what kind of tyres should I run. I saw some Giant Sole-O tires that looked like they had amazing road grip but I wonder if they were too street. Around where I ride the road sometimes has gravel/cinders on it and i'm wondering if staying with actual bmx tires are better than crossing over to road tires. Any advice would be great.
