Dunno, I just run rear maguras and front bb7 on my inspired fourplay

Wouldn't probably run it any other way

disk, on any bike except bmx, its safer, because if you bend your rim, it doesnt skip, you only have to worry about bending the disk, which is like 25-50 bucks to replace i think.

It's really personal preference. Rim brakes will always be better at locking the wheel than discs. I have dual disc on my Reset which is fine for most things but, I'm not terribly smooth. So, I sometimes get some brake slippage that I know a decent rim brake would catch.

Riding brakeless completely changes the way you ride it stops you doing so many correction hops and makes you learn how to roll stuff and be smoother its also so fun aswell.

rim brakes wear out the rim, don't work as well in the rain or mud, and is more expensive to replace then a new disc.
