I'm thinking of taking my full suspension with disc brakes on the great
divide. Will disc brakes withstand those steep downhills, with a bob
trailer attached as well? What have people experienced or heard about.

lissa - I'm assuming that your current configuration of disc brakes accomodates hooking the BoB to your bicycle. Providing that is not an issue (some Avid Disc's have proven too wide for the BoB Fork), then the rest is common sense in that a disc system being more efficient or "twitchy" will require slower speeds on downhill, and/or a feathery touch. In and of itself though discs shouldn't prove a detractor from doing the CD. Enjoy your Voyage...Mark of the Datlon Boys
