just did this on my B17, IS Hope mini monos onto PM forks using a Hope adapter.
Only real complication was that it bumps up the rotor by +20mm, in my case from 180 to 200, which caused a few problems (namely the wheels were centrelock and they go in 203mm flavour, so i changed the wheels) but nothing that can't be overcome

I found theses a while ago when I was after something else, they do one that keeps the same disc size. Just read the disclaimer.

Cheers!

I did google but all the images I flicked through (like these I think) are for IS to Post.

I.e. forks are IS and brakes are newer style post mount.

Yes!

This is what I need.

Next stupid question...

Can most brakes run most sizes?

Have Magura Louise and, ideally, want to run 203 on the front?

Is mount Calipers are for a set size so what are your Maguras running at the moment? As this will dictate what mount you choose.

This is a new coming together of fork, brake and disc...

Will do some more research.

Thanks again.
