    Avid/Hayes rotors on Shimano center-lock hubs?

    Is it possible to put non-Shimano rotors on Shimano center-lock disc hubs? It looks like it would require an adaptor to mate the 6-hole rotor mount to the piece that mounts to the center-lock hole of the hub.

    i'm not aware of any adapter that allows you to do this. Depending on the brake you can use a shimano rotor.

    There's one coming, but it's not available yet. Just noticed this weekend that QBP is now showing a "Problem Solvers" one on their website. Pic attached.

    A good friend of mine just installed a set of them on his hubs. He read this article before buying, and it convinced him (R. Cunningham wouldn't steer you wrong):

    Then he threw a set of these rotors on http://www.dirtydogmtb.com/skull.html

    Magura sells some centerlock adapters ... but their website does not indicate if it's Problem Solver ty pe or DT type... you can ask them first... price is 25 bucks a wheel.
