Hi All. Having no end of fun trying to upgrade a front brake on a '99 specialised FSR elite. It has manitou Xvert shocks. The 69mm PM type. I have sourced a 96mm-IS adapter from A2Z but now need the correct iS-PM adapter for the Quad nano brake. I started with a 160 disc and got a 180 disc with the Quad. Thing is, the IS-PM adapter with the kit is too big and leaves me about 13mm short of brake pad contact. I have been told that a 160 IS-PM adapter with a 170 disc along with the A2Z 69 adapter should just about work.
Any shared experience on upgrading Manitou 69mm PM forks? :?

you might want to put this question out on the wider forum ('Retro MTB chat', for example) you may get more replies.
