- Floating rotor touching forks
My mate took a Dremel to the post mount on his Fox 36 in order to use a floating rotor…the alternative, which would be my preference, is to use a normal rotor.
Edit: I also had this when running a floating rotor on a centre lock adaptor. The alloy carrier for the rotor is too thick. Going to normal rotors solved it.Posted 5 years ago06awjuddMember
Mine was pretty damn close to touching on my totems, you could try using washers as a form of spacer to push the rotor out a bit – I have no idea if it would work though?
The alternative is to sell them (you’ll get a decent price) and get a normal rotor, in my experience floating rotors offer no benefit anyway.Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

if you had a a Hope or Shimano hub it would most likely work.
Hope + Fox 32 F120 doesn’t clear- or at least, didn’t on my mate’s bike. And Shimano + 36 on another mate’s. (I had Roval and Revelations and they were fine but I think that might be the fork more than anything else)
The amount of material you’d need to get faced off is huge- remember you need to keep some clearance so you’re not just taking off the few points of a mm to get it to stop touching in the best cases. Realistically you’d need to take it back a couple off mm to restore normal clearance.Posted 5 years ago
