What you could try is (if you have a wheel, disc and caliper) is trial fit the wheel and offer up the caliper against the mount and see how it looks


My next job :-)

well, my next job on this project, might be next week

Got an odd non disc frame hanging in the shed and a hope disc caliper still in the inbox, just need to dig a wheel out

The disc adapter you have there is a Onza disc mount, the hole on the face is for attaching it to the dropout (optional), there should be grub screw in the threaded hole on the rear edge & you need the extended skewer.

I've just bought a Sturmey XRD8 (W) for the princely sum of £15 :D , after it was trashed by the previous owner trying it on a tandem :shock: . Luckily the hub is not damaged, spares are available & the internals are a complete cartridge unit at £99.99 inc vat.

So, tried the bracket of mystery. Couple of issues now.

1) the xmaxle fits the frame dropout, but obviously it does not extend the the bracket. This means the bracket is no braced against anything at this point and if it all moves the contact would be with the qr skewer. I guess the onza kit included some sort of spacer arrangement. Any clues?

The bracket seems to place the caliper just so... which is good....

.... But
2) the alignment between caliper and disc seems somewhat offset... (note the exposed thread on the bolt, say what, 6 to 8 mm?). This is just plain bizarre. What am I doing wrong here guys? More spacers required here too? Surely the bracket would be designed to get the mounting points closer than that!

I also started a separate thread to try to resolve this particular issue <here>, seems to make sense and having a sensible thread title might just get some answers in :(
