comment How do I know whether my bike can use disk brakes?
If you are looking at mechanical (cable operated) discs you may need new levers also.

comment How can I remove the bottom bracket from this old road bike?
If you bring the number on the seal (6003 RSR?) to a bearing supplier like Bearing Specialty, Eastern Bearing etc they can easily cross reference it and they sell retail.

For what it's worth I mounted linear pull MTB style pads on an older road bike with 27 inch wheels and have noticed no ill effects.

comment Mountain bike crankset chainring compatibility
If you don't use the big ring much you may consider a bash ring. It installs in place of the big ring but with no teeth and is strong enough to bounce off logs and rocks.

comment Brake pad rubbing the rim
Make sure you have the correct size spoke wrench and make very small adjustment. If after making a few small adjustments you see no difference or it gets worse have it checked at your LBS.

comment Brake pad rubbing the rim
Using the valve as a reference does the wheel stop in the same place every time? Does it rub constantly around the entire wheel?
