    Welcome to the forum (WTTF). What forks you currently running, what's your budget and where do you currently ride? With that info, we'll gladly help you spend your money

    You're gonna be limited on choice by needing v-brake mounts I think. Others on here might know of something good.

    For 300quid you can get Rebas and a front hydro disc brake!
    Ride hard but avoid the hikers

    What he said.

    Even a budget hydro would be better than Vs

    Only problem is disc compatible wheel, but they are available for 50+ WTTF by the way!

    If you can't change from v mounts then try to find some secondhand RS Toras (302 I think) they had disc and V mounts. Be better than the suntours but not by much and you'd be able to put spare money to other upgrades.

    V bosses have been ditched on all but the budget forks now unfortunately. The new entry level RockShox XC series forks (looks like they replaced the Sora) have V mounts, and I've seen 2012 Recons with them too. Marzocchi 44s also have them but I don't know if there's still quality issues with 'zocchis or if they've sorted it now.

    To change to discs you would need to budget for around 120 or so for the brake, disc and wheel (based on Shimano Deore spec).
