I really should have got one of these back in the day, but I never did! :roll:

I know that you could get them back in the day. I think they were a Hope part, but they could have been an original Pace bit.

I've only ever seen one, and it was a long time ago. I have a feeling they stopped selling them because people overtightened them and crushed the carbon leg.
These were particular to this fork because of the tapered leg, so I'm guessing there's not many of them about.

Sorry, I don't have a photo.

Anyone got one knocking around??

I think they only worked with the old hope c2 discs too. I know of a shop in leeds that reckoned he could get hold of them when he saw my RC36's. I could try following him up on it next time im up there.

It would be great if you could, ta.

I'd be interested to know what disk and calliper would be needed if they know that as well.

Cheers, Chris.

So do the brackets only work with the Old Hope calipers?

Yep you also need a shorter axle for the older hope splined disc hub!
