Hi, I'm selling some parts from the stash to help fund a few current builds and more builds in future.. If you think my prices are way out, please PM me and let me know where they should be. Collection from Leicester (England) for Item 001 is preferred.
OK. I'll caveat this post by saying that I am absolutely no AMP expert, I took lots of advice when building my own AMP based full suspension bike (95 Litespeed Obed FS) and know there is a difference in building a bike with AMP Research and RockShox calipers that you need to be aware of....

I am reliably informed by my advisors that if you use AMP calipers then you need a 152mm (6") Front rotor and a 133mm (5.23") rear rotor. But, if you chose RockShox then you need to use a 163mm (6.4") front rotor and a 145mm (5.7") rear rotor. So RockShox managed to somehow make their calipers use the same mounts as AMP calipers but their calipers are roughly 1/2" longer than AMP Research hence needing larger rotors!! (I'm now wondering if this need for increased rotor surface area is because RockShox calipers/rotors were designed for Boxxer forks and they needed more stopping power downhill than an (XC) AMP bike?) And this is why we need standards to make our lives easier when building things with building blocks.....

So if you want to use period correct AMP or RockShox disc hubs, calipers and rotors on your AMP frames and forks you need the following: Hub that takes 3 bolt rotors. Can be AMP Research, RockShox or Formula. Your choice of caliper will determine the size of your rotor as per the above paragraph, but you need to find the correct caliper mount. There are specific AMP front and rear caliper mounts and I don't have any for sale, sorry. So unless you have the mounts you need, you will likely need to place a wanted ad on here and/or on the Ampoholics facebook web page. The AMP and RockShox calipers are cable pull so your existing canti/V brake brake lever is fine.

If you want to use 'modern' disc calipers, there is a chap on here (from Canada or USA IIRC) who was selling adapters to enable you to use modern IS mount (and post mount?) calipers. I bought a few of those sets in 2016/7 when first available but can't advise on which rotors sizes are needed for those as I went down the RockShox road as Gold looked better on my build than silver..

Hey man!

I'm very interested in the NOS rear W.I. rock shox hub, and possibly a rock shox disc brake if you have one with a rear adapter?

Thank you very much! 🤙
 
Sorry - after looking again, I could be interested in the 135mm WI rear hub instead...do you think it would polish up fine? Unless you know where I can pick up these adapters from 110-135mm?
And I'll need a rear rotor too...please let me know if any or all of these are still possible.

Thank you very much,
Andrew.
