    Do you have centrelock hubs and 6-bolt rotors? If so, then yes this’ll do the job (I use them myself 🙂 ) But if it’s the other way around, then nope, they won’t! I think you’d need to buy some new rotors?

    youd then need a 5 bolt rotor for it I guess.

    What Stoner says above is correct but you also need a screw on lock ring to hold the spider in place. Just make sure you get the right spider because I think they may be a couple of different spline patterns, a call to Hope should confirm this. I used to have the same system on my old Hope Bulbs.

    Sorry guys, should have explained myself better – yes it’s an old splined Hope hub. Need to fit a 6 bolt rotor.

    Psycle – are you on Hope hubs? All the adaptors I have seen mention Shimano centre locks, not sure if they are the same.

    shimano centrelock is very different to hope splines.

    best to get in touch with hope I reckon (or time for a new hub!)

    you could ask hope whether they make a splined-to-6bolt spider? But I cant find one retail, so it would prob be a special order and probably cost some.

    The alternative is to buy a new XC hub which will have IS 6 bolt fitting for about £35, and rebuild your wheel onto it. or a ProII for £50ish.

    You will need new rotors to fit your spider but Hope are pretty good they even offered to make me some avid style rotors to fit my old 5 bolt spiders once.
    Just give them a call and im sure they would be able to help.

    Oh! I know… I know… Me…Me… Put’s up hand.
    Clears throat. Hmmm!! OK…
    Hope made the “original centre-lock” on the Ti-Hubs. Unfortunately the spline was much bigger with less teeth, and so is incompatible with shimano. There was a couple of adapters made for 6 hole rotors, (Sachs did them at the time), but there is probably no way you’ll get an adapter from Hope spline to Int Stnd 6 bolt fitting nowadays. What you’ll have to do is take a 5 bolt rotor in the correct size and the alminium spyder you’ve already got, fiddle about with washers and spacing for 10 mins, as these old hubs had a diffrent horizontal spacing to newer Int stnd ones, and it should fit. Speak to the guys at Hope for more info.

    Right,

    Here is the spider off my hub,

    http://p1.pinkbike.com/photo/2993/pbpic2993496.jpg

    As you can see it has a lot more splines than in the stoners above (more shimano-esque?)

    Sorry to go on:

    Does anyone know if there would be a compatibilty issue with this:

    http://www.rushcycles.co.uk/products.php?plid=m2b7s225p417

    ie. different offset etc?

    Hi Tops, That Spider will work perfectly with the rotor from Rush cycles. I had excactly the sames spiders on my old Hope Bulbs when running first generation Mini’s.

    Go for it!
    Provided you have the proper adapter for the rotor/fork mount, there shouldn’t be any other prolems other than the >1.5mm horizontal spacing. 🙂

    Thanks all

    Those nice people at Hope are sending me a Hayes specific splined (or 5 bolt) disc. What service! 😀
