    CenterLock Q

    Ive read some reviews of the Centerlock system and that the IS 6 bolt works fine, but are not supported by shimano, anybody know whats up w/this? I was thinking of the new XT's but have a 24mm hub.

    You can use the XT calipers with a Maverick fork but you need a 6-bolt rotor for the hub. Only Maverick and Chris King make 24mm axle hubs AFAIK.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I belive Bontrager is also making a 24mm hub for the maverick fork, I know know if you have to buy a whole wheel or if you can get the bub. I did not see it on their site a few days ago but i know they make one for the Cake 1 with maverick sc

    Ya its the Mav MBits 24 hub, what about the Saint brakes,? According to reveiwers you can forego the centerlock and just use a standard IS6 disc?

    a 6 bolt rotor should work with saint brakes with a proper sized 6 bolt rotor.

    Ok now Im really confused, cambriabike offers the Saint in CenterLock or IS 6 bolt.

    http://www.cambriabike.com/shopexd.asp?id=12840

    The NONCenterLock is $30 more, the Shimano site says Saint is Not compatable w/ IS6 bolt. Some reviewers state the IS6bolt works fine.

    So what gives, are there to different caliper bodies or adapters for an IS6bolt conversion or is Shimano trying to cover adapability up to push their CenterLock?

    You can use any rotor with Saint. You don't have to use the centerlock one.

    How do you like the Saints?

    Spacing/offset is same for all CenterLock hub/discs right? So you can just use 6bolt rotors in place for all the 05 calipers if their the correct diameter?

    The rotor and caliper spacing of the Centerlock brakes is the same as IS brakes. The only difference is the way the rotor attaches to the hub.
