    i am looking for the correct adapter to fit my marzocchi mx pro’s 2009 to my hope mono m4’s( about 4 years old)

    i tried HOPE but they keep telling me different things and when i order the part it wont fit!

    any ideas, or anyone with a similar setup?

    i had a similar bit of trouble.Bought a pair of 08 Marzocchis .They had a post mount.So instead of buying a half caliper for my Hope Mini i thouht may as well get a new Mono Mini caliper.Did it through my LBS.Hope told them that my 180 rotor would be a direct fit WRONGGGGGG!In the end the only way i got it too work was using a 2nd hand 160 rotor.Ho hum.

    right, what size rotor were you using before? i assume its a IS caliper and post mount fork.

    ok, if your have an IS caliper on an IS fork with a 183mm rotor, then when you cahnge to a post mount fork you will need to buy this adaptor and a 203mm disc.

    NOTE: Unfortunately not compatible with new Marzocchi Post Mounts

    wahhh?

    hmmm, well thats what you need so i think your fooked, unless maybe the Magura version will fit the fork? Shimano dont make one the right size so if the magura one dosnt fit and you cant bodge the Hope one (file it maybe, does anyone know why it dosnt fit?) then i think a new brake might be your only option.

    snaps they are the wrong way round, that shows adaptors for an IS fork and post caliper. Blake needs the adaptor i posted but CRC say it wont fit, personally id buy it and set about with a file to make it work, but im happy messing about with things like that and know when it would/wouldnt work. I think the best solution would be get down your local shop with that hope adaptor and have a word with the mechanic (not sales boy) to see if he can help you out.

    thank you any way

    Seem to remember seeing a note saying it won’t fit that combo a few days after actually fitting one with no problem, but I won’t take responsibilty if it doesn’t fit yours.

    I bought the CRC mount above, didn’t fit my gf’s MX Comps, but just needed a couple of mm filing off where it fouled the fork.

    I needed to use Shimano adaptors with my Hope brakes as Hope ones wouldn’t work. Hope adaptors are working with Shimano brakes though. Weird.
