Answer: 
Inevitably disc brakes will squeak to a certain degree when they are wet; however to lower this sound you could run Organic pads but they are not every efficient when wet.

Semi-Metallic although can be quite loud; definitely provide better stopping power when they get soaked.

Be sure to always 'bed' new pads in correctly to ensure the rotor is coated evenly; this will also lower the intensity of rotor scream.

Answer: 
Yes, you should be fine to use these together. If fitting a new brake with an existing rotor be sure to clean the rotor fully prior to installation. For best performance you should consider a new rotor with a new brake.

Sono in possesso di una mtb economica di marca NSR e vorrei sostituire la forcella che risulta troppo morbida e soprattutto i freni anteriori con dei freni a disco ed eliminare i freni classici a tacchetto , senza spendere cifre esorbitanti visto che io uso la bici sporadicamente per qualche passeggiata in montagna, cosa mi consigliate e se è possibile effetuare il cambio dei freni da taccetto a disco?

Answer: 
Ciao, come forcella ti consiglio la seguente:
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/it/it/rockshox-xc-30-tk-coil-forks-9mmqr/rp-prod109686

Sappi che la forcella puoi regolare da te la morbidezza, basta che la smonti e inserisci più olio (il tipo d'olio usato in genere è un modello per pistoni idraulici non siliconico durezza 40).

Per i freni a disco vuoi solo metterli anteriori? Ti consiglio questi:
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/it/it/clarks-s2-hydraulic-disc-brake/rp-prod47543

In caso non volessi cambiare la forcella, verifica se con il modello che hai adesso puoi montare i frendi a disco: in fondo allo steso dovresti vedere due fori posti più o meno a 5/6 cm di distanza tra di loro.
