    160mm to 203mm conversion???

    I am trying to change my 160mm front rotor to 203mm. I have the Shimano BR-M575 brakes and a SR Suntour XTC 29" fork (stock Giant Talon 29er fork). I ordered

    "Magura Adaptor QM7 203mm rotor with front PM 6" mounts"

    Off of eBay. I got it today and am pretty sure I bought the wrong adapter. Any info on the correct adapter and where to get it would be great. Thanks.

    SR-Suntour XCT 29" fork that comes on some versions of the Giant Talon 29er is rated to a maximum disc size of 160mm.

    SR-Suntour Raidon 29" fork that comes on some other versions of the Giant Talon 29er is rated to a maximum disc size of 185mm.

    Is there any reason to not just use the largest rotor possible, would it be overkill??

    You can snap the lowers if you go above the manufacturer's limits. Not saying it will, but it has.
