the way you have it is correct, you don't need a longer bolt or locknut, it will be fine - especially the way you ride downhill :)

no "hope" text just means it is an earlier model eck - it is still cool.

I might borrow that silver mount at some point so Mikee can copy it for me.

Got this from Fairfax Pat 8)

Yo Ken- here is a shot of the Hope brake on the first RS-1 bike which was built for Gary Fisher, then it was mine- I painted it black and added Mert's fork to compliment the rear suspension, also by Mert. It had a Mag 21 stock. Then lastly I sold it to a friend of mine in Fairfax, who still owns it. Last year I helped him get it running again and we posed it with GF holding it in that shot I posted in the recent thread, but we used that shot to publicize the first OWMTB Championship for Mr. K. I was working as a writer in the Bike Industry in '89-91 and helping Mert Lawwill develop his fork. I remember first meeting the guys from Hope at the Interbike show in Anaheim in '90. They got some of their first brakes and came up to Mert's place in Tiburon (a town in Marin) and we fitted one to the RS-1 prototype you see in the picture! Pat



Think an RS-1 might be a target for me.

The more I see first gen brakes the more I think I was "ripped off" by hope in 1991 - I appear to have a unique solid brake rotor (no Alu spider) though I don't mind too much now :)
I think it was down to me ordering a Red/Blue anodized combo which might have been a limited run based on earlier designs that were quickly improved. Things were fairly fluid back then.
Although the early spider design looks like it would still bolt to my hub the offset would cause a clash with my forks.
