- Help! Fitting Hope 6 Pot to Marzocchi 66's – not working!!
I am trying to fit a Hope 6 pot brake to Marzocchie 66 forks and really struggling and am appealing to the Forum Boffins for salvation!
The Marzocchi’s are post mount and the Hopes are IS.
I have an IS to post adaptor but am wondering if they are for a smaller Hope brake – would the 6 Pot’s require a different adaptor to the Hope 4’s which I think I orginally had the adaptor for?
Sadly, I must have 1 tonne of Shimano adaptors for the Godson’s Shimano brakes but do you think I can find a bloody Hope one in there?? 🙄
Any help gratefully appreciated!

I have the same set-up on the tandem, Ti6’s on ‘zochhi 66’s. As suggested above they have a unique mount adaptor for various combinations of disc size & IS / post mount.
There’s one here:
It’s the Manitou one you want (as Manitou invented post mount). Don’t get the ‘Marzccohi’ one, I made that mistake, that’s specific to Junior T’s or something similar.
The standard front mount is for a 203mm disc, you can’t go smaller.
Hope will be able to help, we had to get a new bracket from them to go up from 185 to 203 on the rear of the tandem.

Oh, and one thing to watch out for:Posted 7 years ago
might be because I’m using Big ‘uns which use a 5 bolt disc, but there was no clearance between the disc bolt heads and the inside of the fork leg. I had to grind a few mm off the heads to get the wheel to turn without fouling.
