Morning good people of RetroBike,
Having recently got a set of Hope Mini of the Post Mount flavour for the forks I have on the bike currently - I know have a sparkly pair of Hope RC36 ProClassII arriving any minute that are IS mount.

The Hope Mini is in beautiful condition - so I'm loathed to buy another.
The forks shouldn't be run with discs bigger that 160mm - I believe.

So if I get an adaptor - is this the one to go for...
Hope160 Front IS Post Brake Mount - A
Hope mount adaptor to mount a 74mm post mount caliper to a 51mm International Standard fork mount to accomodate a 160mm disc


Your expert advice much appreciated - before I shell out the £
Thanks

That's what you'll need - you don't need Hope brand, this Shimano one is probably a lot cheaper.

Now if Bracknell Bikes had one in stock I could nip round and get one from them :)
Otherwise I'll have to go to another shop on my way home. :cry:
