Is there such a thing as an IS to IS plus 10mm adaptor?
I've got a 180mm disc on my Norco and a plus 20mm adaptor, but only half the pad is biting on the disc :roll:
Any ideas?

Rear/frontend specific adapter maybe? I have tried that with a rearspecific on my fork. Never heard of a 10mm plus adapter.
