I think all forks can take big rotors if you use the correct caliper mounting adaptor. Is the size max thing something to do with fork flex?

Most of the 26" appear to be. Probably find the 29ers are thats size.


Looking at the disc side dropout, its a lot deeper than the ones on pace or exotic. Might be thats the position of the caliper needs to be in line with the dropout end and not above it.

Hi all I am looking for a long cage Shimano XT or LX 8 speed rear derailleur. Maybe even a matching front triple.

I picked up a set of Pro (Shimano) XCR carbon legged rigid forks from a forum member, they look ace! And have been fitted to my bike ready for the 'Puffer, which may or may not happen in January :?

How come your location says Bournemouth now??? :shock:

Lovely fork, and quite a price. Look ace indeed and solid carbon, and we lesser mortals stuck with dodgy alloy glue on. :(

21" P7 frame nickle plated, looks immaculate - £95

I doubt anyone will see this as the place appears near abandoned. Maybe too much activity in the one section makes it seem that way.
