look on the net you can buy adapters

You can buy adapters, but they would cost nearly as much as your entire bike.

Before you start adding disks, take a look at more important parts of the bike, like frame, fork, wheels.

just get some aluminum from a hardware store and make some brackets with a hawk saw, tablevice/vicegrips and a drill

on a Schwinn kicker u should upgrade the fork first

Ride the Schwinn till it dies, then toss it and then buy a bike from a BIKE store. Do not start putting a half decent fork onto a POS frame with POS parts. Ride it till it dies and then start over.

i'm willing to bet that you can't mount a rear disc do to the lack of rear frame mount....ie, it's not disc compatible.

You can, but you need someone REAL GOOD to weld them up, maybe you can buy adapters. There's a place down in Aus where they can practically weld up anything your mind can conjure

In theory you could weld a car to a tree, but in practice, the disc tab would shear off due to the fact that the frame is in no way designed to have a disc tab on there.....and then theres heat treating.

I don't think you could weld a car to a tree..... Anyway, they make a living out of this stuff, I'm pretty sure it would stay on. But it would cost $195 AUD inc postage whatever (so that what... about $3 USD now?). But yeah, the process is worth much more than your frame so just save up for a new bike.

And if you want to see, here it is. Check the photo albums for photo's of finished products http://www.gripsport.com.au/main.php?part=products
