Hello again, All!
So I received my 165mm disc today and was boucing off the walls having thought my brake problems were sorted!.....
I offered up the rotor to the hub (a SUN Ringle Lawwill) to find that the hole-pattern is too small! Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrgggghhhhh!

Could you let me know what hubs you guys are using for this to work, cos it seems I'm gonna have to replace this good hub to fit the rotor, unless someone else knows of another way!?!

This is really beginning to grind my gears... excuse the pun!

Many Thanks in advance, guys! It will be worth it!!!!!

Turns out I've managed to get a Diatech rotor which is hub-specific!

What luck!!!! Hahaha! So the search continues for a 165mm IS standard rotor!

Wish me luck

Ditto what Kieronic said about the pics, will look forward to seeing it taking shape :)

Thank you :)

The frame cost me £65 with BB converter not including delivery... Build cost thus far is growing slowly -1k once completed (ouch) ;)
