It dawned on me the other day that i could probably fit one of the new Hope x2 flat mount calipers on the 22mm Hayes mounts on my old Spooky. Anyway after a bit of internet research, it turns out that i'm by no means the first person to consider this and that it is physically, totally possible. There is a guy on a US forum who has made a beautiful little adapter. I am going to try and order one from him, but before i do i wondered if anyone in the UK had made one? On the basis that it might take ages to arrive from the USA i have ordered some 6mm aluminium plate and am going to make my own in the interim. If anyone has made one would you mind sharing the successful dimensions?
Thanks

I’ve literally just removed my Spooky mount/ Hope mount ready to take to my friends CNC shop next week (see my other thread) as part of a batch of rare items to have reproduced

Cool, but what i'm trying to do is make a hayes 22mm to the new 34mm flat mount standard adapter, then i can use a brand new hope x2 caliper in there.
I have seen some drawings for one made for an old klein but they look a bit off to me.

Would be interested to see what you are able to come up with. Last year. I managed to design and have manufactured an IS bracket for the Bandwagon frames that has been very successful
