these days I received the IS to IS +20mm adaptor and the 6mm hose connector, from a small shop in Germany.
Installed everything, do some bleeding and everything worked as suposed - at least on the workstand
While yesterday the weather was fine I took the bike out for a short ride. On the flat the brakes behaved well, but when it comes to decending and having to brake hard I feel a bit of rubbing, wopping which is enoying, also they are also very noisy.
When home I checked the pads and rotors and find out, that the pads are do not have contact on the entire brake surface of the rotor, instead the pads are also touching the discstrut (are they called like that ?)
I have to say, that I'm now using Shimano rotors 180 and 160 diameter. The brakesurface of the Shimano rotor is arround 16 mm wide, while I checked a 140 mm Hope rotor which is arround 20 mm wide.
Heres a pics. of the same Hope disc I have in 140, but larger diameter - I guess I need one of that design in 180 and 160 to achieve a perfect match between pads and rotor - any idea where I get one of these nowadays ?viewtopic.php?f=41&t=243382
