    a2z adapters-any good?

    They are made from 1/8" stamped steel, with not much material around the holes. Are they strong enough to not flex under hard braking? This one in particular I am considering.

    since no one else weighed in...
    I had that adapter, ran it with a 200mm rotor and never really noticed flex. I'm not sure how I would have noticed it though. My only real issues with it where 1: it's thin, thinner than IS mounting tabs so you either find shorter bolts for the caliper to adapter interface or put some spacers on the outside so the end of the bolt doesn't interfere with the rotor. My brakes came with spacers that I think where meant for 110mm spaced hubs that worked perfectly for this.
    second, I couldn't really get a wrench on the adapter to fork bolts while the caliper was on the adapter, so I had to tighten the adapter to the fork and adjust the caliper position with spacers, rather than sliding the PM interface around.


    actually, I'm not using it anymore. You can have it for postage if you want; PM me.
