toomanyframes, If one of the Hope 22mm mounts mentioned in the linke thread can be of use to you please send me a PM so I can help you out. I've got 3 or 4 other retrobike members who are also after one. You may have to be patient with me though, my contact who manufactured some copies made a first batch which unfortunately had a small measurement error, since this time though he's had a nasty accident and isn't at work at present to do a corrected batch. As and when he does return though I'll happily be in touch with details.

And yes Tony, your % cut is still up for negotiation mate! :wink:

Sounds good mate, I've gotta trawl through a load of old PM's on here and elsewhere but I'm sure someone offered me a Hayes 22mm caliper in the last 6 months or so. I'll see if I can find out who it was and then put you in touch with them

I think hope mounts are marked with a part number whereas this isn't.

Yep, that's the Hope HBRM165H mount, the early ones weren't marked. They later started printing the model no on the flat horizontal part. Do you not just want an old a Hope C2 No 1 caliper so you can utilise this yourself?
