Cheers for the replies guys!

This has caused me a huge headache as I swear hope say its for a 165 or 163 rotor.


It is. There's no such thing as a Hope C2 160mm rotor. I think they didn't start using them until the Mini came out. You can use a 160mm mini rotor though. They have a wide contact area and are available in 5 bolt fittings, and they still crop up on ebay.
What frame is it on? Maybe the frame has odd mount spacing?


Your joking :(
It's one from eBay, Hope c2 160mm is what I searched for.

It's on a Ribble R4 MTB, I don't think it's the frame because for a temporary measure I have placed a Hope 183/185mm disc on the rear with a +20 adaptor on the caliper.

This is it: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/160mm-6-Inch- ... 0647320466

Thanks for your advice.

If 160mm, 6 bolt is what you need then that will be fine.
There's a lot of fun to be had with old disc brakes; wait until you need new pads! :lol:

Yeah, its all fun, if a little frustrating at times.

I actually managed to source some C2 pads the other week, pleased to say there's still a couple of companies making them.

The best fun will be crosssing all my fingers and toes that the Hope M4's I have coming will gracefully slot into place! One can only dream!

Depends on the brake :? We seem to be lucky and c2/o2 pads are still readily available.
I suppose if you were really stuck and i mean really.You could grind down something else to fit :lol:

Nice! When you say print, do you mean you can manufacture these yourself? I only ask as I'm after a 165 and 185 C2 Disc's myself! :wink:

Not at the moment sorry.

These are beta ones.

If they fit properly and I'm happy with them I'll "print" off some more.
