In short, no. There are two main problems: Your bike does not have disc brake tabs. Your bike does not have a derailleur hanger. To be fair, it could be done, it would just be so expensive that you'd be better off buying a completely new bike with gears and disc brakes. If you chose to pursue this project, you would need: a new fork with disc brake ...

Some ideas - mark the rotor where it rubs. then remove and refit the rotor but turn it 90 degrees relative to the hub. Does it rub in the same place or 90 degrees away? I think you'll find the lump follows the hub, not the rotor. Use a straight edge (like a steel ruler) across the flat of the rotor mount to look for any imperfections - they will be ...

I think @itsthejash has some good tips but I'd also suggest taking the rotor off the hub and making sure there is no dirt or other material on part of the mounting surface of the hub, thus pushing it out in one spot. Maybe use some cleaner to ensure the surface of the hub and rotor are clean on the faces that meet during mounting. Also - when you engage ...

I think that will be okay. Have a look if there are no spacers behind the rotor mount bolts - or if it's center lock see if there is a spacer behind it as well. Removing these may help.

Frames and set us do differ so sometimes you can't use the built in cable routing without making the cable bend at an unrealistic angle. This can be resolved by leaving a bit more cable so it can (in your pic) loop a little under the chain stay and then probably miss out that cable route. However, saying that, looking at the pic the rubber housing makes the ...

Take a little bit longer housing (about 10mm) for the cable and let it a curve to bottom. It should fit perfectly.

You can definitely do the swap, and any axle that's the right diameter and length will do. If you match the QR axles you have you should be able to move the cones and locknuts over with no problems. You will be much better off if you have a cone spanner to set things up properly. With a bike that nice I would be tempted to pay a bike shop to do it, just so ...

The frame comes stock with 160mm rotor in front and a 140mm rotor in rear and uses a spacer for the front post mount only. From this link, it looks like you need the 20p spacer, which Avid says is OEM only. However the spacing dimensions are 12.5mm top and 7.5mm bottom. You can probably find spacers of those dimensions to mount it without the OEM spacer. ...
