Bicycle Repair/Dis Breaks


Can you put dis breaks on Schwinn Prelude bike model number s4030

The short answer: No.Neither the frame nor the fork of that bike appears to have the necessary mounting tabs for disc brake calipers.
If the frame/fork is made of steel, and if you are feeling adventurous, you could procure the required mounting brackets and have them welded on....These are very big "ifs", however, as the requisite time/effort would be large.

Good Luck.

I can answer most inquiries with respect to bicycle assembly, repair, tuning and maintenance. I am less than inclined to speak on such questions as "What kind of bike should I buy?", &/or "What is this bike worth?", etc. Any answers to these types of questions may correlate poorly to an acceptable "fact/sarcasm" ratio.
