Hope M4 - Compatible with 180mm rotor?

Postby Ghostt » Tue Nov 27, 2012 16:52 pm

Has anyone used a Hope M4 with a 160 to 183mm PM adaptor with a standard 180mm rotor? Looking at installing an M4, but hoping not to shell out another £35 for a 183mm rotor, but not sure whether the 3 mm difference will cause problems with braking power/uneven pad wear where the caliper is sat too high. Alternatively, anyone know of a 160 to 180mm PM adaptor that'll fit an M4 caliper?

just get any 160 to 180mm adaptor. or some suitable hollow rod and longer bolts if you can cut straight.

Cheers. Thought as much, good to get a professional opinion on it! yet again all the thousands of bike standards causing untoward confusion
