- Rotors/adaptors query – fairly 'urgent' answer required
Hi – need quick answer to what is probably a dumbass question.
Bear with me:
I currently have a 203mm XT 6 bolt rotor up front (RS Revelation post mount using a 203mm caliper adaptor) on a DT Swiss centerlock hub using a DT Swiss adaptor. Out back I have a 185mm XTR centerlock rotor on an XT centerlock hub using a 185mm caliper adaptor.
I am buying a Hope 6 bolt rear wheel as my current rear needs replacing.
Can I use my front 203mm 6 bolt front rotor with the 203mm caliper adaptor on the back – then put the 185mm centerlock rotor on the front using the 185mm caliper adaptor?
In theory I should be able to – means the front rotor will be slightly (18mm) smaller than the back.
I need a quick ‘yes you can do it’ as picking up wheel after work!

Should be fine I’d have thought – it’s the rotor size and caliper adaptor that should match.
Found out the hard way some Hope brakes are 183mm rather than 180. Well, it wasn’t that hard just a really really annoying noise climbing out of the saddle
EDIT – oh hang on,didn’t notice you were swapping ends .. I’m pretty sure when I cured said noise I bought a caliper adaptor front and rear specific – and CRC seems to back that up.Posted 5 years ago
