    Do what you fear, you won\'t regret it.

    You are only as brave as your skill level.

    Are your wheels disc ready? If not you'll have to budget for new wheels too...

    And I take it that your frame and forks have the correct mounts...?

    For £50 your deffo looking and second hand and to be honest I wouldn't touch second hand brakes with a very long pointy stick. Bear in mind that very often they can be the difference between an enjoyable ride and a quick visit to casualty.

    IMHO you would be better off saving your pennies for a bit and buying new when you can afford it.

  • To be honest, a £50 set of V's would perform better than the same spent on discs.
