Hi guys,

This is my first post, so please excuse me if I have missed anything or am in the wrong section :P

I have got a DiamondBack Overdrive FX 2011 Hard tail Mountain Bike, admittedly nothing special, but I cant afford a new one at the moment because I have just bought a Giant Defy 1 for traveling to work etc.

What I want to do is two things,
Firstly, Add a disk break to the rear of the bike, the standard V-break is nowhere near as good as the front disk when the going gets muddy! Is this possible to do? how easily and how much?
Second, Is it worth a new, slightly softer, set of suspension forks? considering the bike will be used for very little on road use because that's what the Defy is for :)

Thanks in advanced :D
