if you want disc brakes, which I highly recommend, make sure your hubs have the six-bolt mounts for the rotors, or a Shimano Centerlock interface. I have Avid BB7s on my bike. they are easy to set up and work very well. I had the BB5’s before that and they were a pain to maintain and not as snappy as the 7’s.
