Thanks! I've never even considered harvesting parts from my current bike, much less cross-compatibility especially with using v-brake levers for mechanical disk brakes

I know that my LBS has a '13 Trek Mamba for $929 vs. Trek's MSRP of $1100 which has Hayes hydraulic discs

I'm only about 170 lbs so the added length of the wheels shouldn't be an issue. And given that in the fall of 2013, I'll be a freshman in college and would need something reasonably priced now. Also, just off the top of your head, how much would you estimate I could get for a 2011 Trek 3700 non-disc brake? As far as support goes, I have an awesome LBS near me (bicycles inc) who specializes in Trek and Specialized bikes
