I have just installed Shimano BR M596 calipers to my front fork (post mount) mated to a Shimano SM-RT75 180 rotor. I'm using a SM MA F180P/P2 adapter.
I have noticed that the sweep pattern on the rotor is only covering 75% of the area available. The inner part of the rotor is untouched. Fortunately braking power seems to be OK.
So this leads me to the conclusion that the caliper is a trifle higher.
I'm using the two washers on each the mounting bolt. I think that if I remove them the caliper will be in the right position (it will be closer or lower).
Can I do this ? Someone told me they're adjusting washers, but can I live without them ?
