Sorry if this has been asked a million time before butI did try searching (honest).

Ive got a canti only RC200 and a disc drop out, thanks to Gil at the cycle shed, but no idea how big a disc rotor I can squeeze into my frame. Can anyone help?

(I was thinking of hope hubs and 160mm Hope mono minis if thats any useful info)

Thanks.

Should be fine with both a 140mm and 160mm

Let me know if you have a problem :)

Ta Gil, I had asked you in an email but I thought it never hurts to ask about.

160 on the rear will be fine and astheticaly the most pleasing specially
with a wavy rotor.
but it depends on your mount and to some extent on the caliper your fitting

Bit of a late update I know but I got 185 front and 160 rear Hope Mono Minis fitted (new model with the sawtooth rotor) along with some 06 RC39's. Loads of rotor clearence at the back but I cant see me ever wanting to go bigger.

Now I'm working on the slightly wheelie happy nature uphill (just moved the seat forward and the stem down a touch) and my tendancy to pinch puncure every ride going down cos I'm going quicker :wink:.

p.s. Thanks Gil, the drop-out works a treat.
