comment Converting bike from rim brakes to disc brakes
Upgrading your bike may work out cheaper than buying wheels and brakes. Used mountain bikes are very cheap these days since there is now an abundance of quality bikes. Also consider that a lot of cable disc brakes are absolute rubbish, especially low end shimano. Good suspension can also improve braking a lot. If you upgrade your bike you'll probably get better suspension.
