    It is generally just a matter of a different mounting adapter for the caliper and a new rotor.
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    All you need is the adapter and make sure your fork can handle a 203mm rotor

    Yup , just an adapter and new rotor. What fork do you have anyways that you wanna use? Cuz i know my Marz66 didnt need an adapter for my 203mm rotor but my Lyrick did that was 170mm.
