Hi all, I know this is a bit of an old thread but I think I have a relevant question. I have recently tried to reuse an old 97 z1 bomber fork i have had kicking around for the last 15 years but found it won’t take a modern is Caliper,was there a period before they finalised the is standard? I have a c2 that fits as it was fitted with it from new but I just assumed is was is if you know what I mean.

Pr-standardization 48mm (or is it 47 :? I always forget.

There was apparently an adaptor, though i have never seen any released under the Hope name, though I seem to remember at least one on here made one.

Outside of that you need an elusive Hope C2 number 4 caliper. (just read you have that bit, and i'd be happy to take it off your hands for my clock :D


Solution as far as i can see is to fabricate something.

Cheers Andy I thought you might have an official answer, I only tried to use the forks as I had a load of bits that I was throwing onto a cheap giant frame for lugging the kids about. I’ve no idea what the brake is worth it’s a complete original front brake with I think the sport lever I’ve owned it from new (97) but been in a box for prob 15 years or so. Looks fine no corrosion at all but obviously will need some love. Pm me if you want to chat about it oh and it was for a 185 disc which I also have.

I'll take a guess at Suntour individual cogs, or maybe campagnolo :? Maybe ask in the road section.

Shhh, dont remind me :lol:

Private collection is its destination. So I'll not be getting that back, but with these things I kind of like to own them :oops:

I've dropped the Moulton club a note asking for any info they might have, as to date etc.
