Hope 180 mm rotors
interesting, id post up a pic if you can.Posted 7 years ago
Have you tried re-centering the calliper onto the mount, ie by undo-ing the two bolts ‘on top’ (facing you) this will allow the calliper body to slide horizontally on the top of the mount posts and you can move it out the way?
Quick tip, undo both bolts, squeeze brake, do up bolts while holding brake.
I have Fox F90RLs and recently upgraded the brakes (Hope Tech V2 s) with 180mm rotor, previously 160mm rotors. Mavic Crossride wheelset which has a centre lock type hub with a 6 bolt adaptor. The rotor is now a hairs bredth away from top post mount and can be made to rub. Anyone else had the same problem and what was the fix if any other than going back to 160mm. Dont knok if the problem is the mavic hub adaptor or perhaps the forks werent designed to take a 180 rotor. Any ideas – puzzledPosted 7 years ago
Usually down to Mavic hub as far as I remember,but worth checking you have the rotor centred in the caliper itself, and then adjust the pads as per the way Hope show you in their Tech video(forget squeeze/tighten/ perfect alignment-you’ll need to be very lucky or easily satisfied for that to really work).Posted 7 years ago
how the **** can maviv make a hub that is too f**king wide!! mavic crossride with 6 bolt adaptor gives me about 20 thou clearance between disc and top post mount. old non branded front hub (some sort of shimano copy which the mavic were bought to upgrade but which after 2 years of abuse are still truer than the mavics after a dozen or so rides incidentaly ) gives 3-4 mm !!!! should have saved up a bit more for hope hoops, toys leaving the pram – now.Posted 7 years ago
