With the use of rim brakes, after my third almost none stop, I thought about upgrading to disc brakes. It seems that every stop I make while coming down a slight hill is getting longer. So I ordered a set of disc brakes to put on my bike. I think improving the brakes may help.
 
Generally, you can’t switch between rim and disc, (frame, fork and wheel specific). What are you riding?
 
A converted Electra townie bike that has rim brakes on it. I put a Bafang 750w 20ah battery on it. I have been riding it all over town.

I did the same. Added these brakes to the rear and am very pleased with their silent performance. Fronts were ok with the stock brakes.
