Hi, does anyone know what adapter I need to put hope tech x2 brakes onto my RC300 frame? I'm using a 160mm rotor. Thanks :D

There are two you could get as far as I see it, the cheapy Avid one that should work just fine:

Or a more expensive and bawdy anodised one:

Can't see why the Avid would be any worse given the cost difference, but there you go!

Or there's the Hope one which I think matches the frame better: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=13738

You still building your 300 or have you finished it and these are upgrades? You got a build thread up?

Just picked up a brand new hope one off eBay for £7! Build is finished apart from the brakes and chain, going into the LBS for setting up soon with pics to follow! :D
