- Hope v4 rotors/adapters – aaaargh!
I’m running into man maths issues justifying changing my brakes to V4s.
Currently running Guide RSCs with 200mm front, 180mm rear rotors on a Patrol with Fox 36s.
Am I correct in thinking that I can’t use the rotors with the Hopes, as the equivalents are 183 and 203? Meaning that on top of brake and Matchmaker adapters, I’ll need to buy new rotors and adapters as well, adding the best part of a ton to the price? Further complicated by the fact I’m less to verification there are compatibility issues with Fox 36s and Hope floating rotors?Posted 2 years agowill100Member
I’m fairly sure you scan get 200mm/180mm rotors for the hopes so you can reuse your existing adaptors. As the for the discs, ideally you’ll need new ones as the pad is deeper on the hopes than on sram/avid. You can get away with postponing the new disc purchase for a few months but it will result in uneven pad wear.Posted 2 years ago
Cheers all 🙂 Looks like another £25 for the mounts then.
Onzadog – I have 180 > 200 mount on the front with a SRAM centerline 200mm, and a 160>180mm mount on the rear with a 180mm RT86 rotor. I’m lead to believe that the V4 calipers don’t fit with most non Hope mounts,
My main justification for all this is to stop my levers smacking the top tube every time I crash 😀Posted 2 years ago
