John the previous owner (a long time buga contributor) was quite sure that the cfl350 was not a candidate for the disc brake conversion sadly. I will try and suss out the reasoning but am quite sure he was very thorough in all he did with the bedi.
Ourbrakes work quite adequately under normal conditions but we did have a scare on a very steep and lengthy descent. We actually stopped and did a uturn and found an alternate route. The brakes were starting to smell and smoke and, perhaps it was an overreaction, but I  thought they were fading quite markedly....it was enought to make us very cautious about long mountain descents.....little bit ratherbe sure than sorry!
Regards
Bob

Just an idea, https://www.facebook.com/groups/348610318962988/  they do CF350 disk brakes using Commodore rotors.
