    Bought some hope mono mini’s and having a mare finding decent mounts!

    I need to find post mount (lyrik forks) to IS and IS to IS frame, why is this so difficult?

    Both disks are 203mm.

    Help, link, anything much appreciated 🙂

    Cheers all.

    A2z do both, wiggle

    What number calipers?

    They’re single calipers (I think….haha), a lest I assume that’s what the mono dictates. I may be totally wrong on that front though.

    Cheers for the advice though 🙂

    Mono means it was made from a single block of metal – unlike the previous generation, which came in to halfs. Dates back to 2004 era..

    Had a nosey on wiggle and I’m still none the wiser!

    Ah right, I never knew that!

    Fairly new to the customisation game, thanks for the heads up Xiphon.

    Those brakes are exactly what I bought.

    The hope version is HBIS20 and HBIS40 one lifts it by 20mm the other by 40mm. From memory you will need a 40 for the front and possible a 40+20 on the back. Fit them as they are and measure the rotor size (I think mini mono’s were 160F and 140R as standard)

    Once you know what you need then google for it, hope don’t list these as standard anymore so you may be chasing old stock or try some other brand. Superstar only list 1 IS to IS for a front 203 which might do you some good for 1 but not the other. Failing that when you work it out a classifieds wtd should sort you out. I had loads in my spares box but got rid when I left for Oz

    I ccan’t believe its so hard to buy tge right bracket haha

    Should have stuck with the old brakes!

    Want the buggers on now though!

    Bought the braided hoses and what not as well. Plus I bought the 203mm rotors from superstar which I like quite a lot, mostly because they look pointlessly cool.

    So with IS its starts with thd 160mm then its plus 20mm per bracket until you achieve 203mm?

    Try here.. they do a 203 IS brake to PM fork adapter..

    I think IS rear starts at 140 so you need +20 +40 (I used to have that brake but I can’t quite remember) Stick it on and measure first then you will know where to start, failing that drop Hope an e-mail with a pic of the calipers and ask – they should be able to let you know for definite.

    Failing that any decent LBS should be able to sort you out possibly from the random brake spares box.

    I’m going to go a wee bit OT here, so feel free to ignore but Mono Minis and 203mm rotors are a pretty weird combo. Especially on the rear! What’s it for?

    jskiffin

    I know, over kill!

    Just liked the look of 203mm, unecessary buy purely aesthetic.

    Already have elixir 5s, I have a pretty much custom pitch comp 2011. My first custom build, I’ll no doubt decide the extra weight is silly but for now I kinda like em.

    Bought the monos pretty much on a whim
