    From Elixir 7 to Hope Tech X2.... Rotors?

    That's it really.

    I have 180s up front and 160s rear. The literature I have seen talks about 183 rotors.

    Will I need to replace the front rotor, or does the 180 work? If anyone can help it appreciated.

    These are going on a Kona Kahuna that has a Manitou Tower Pro up front.

    I just want to get whatever I need ordered ASAP, so I am not crippling the bike till I get it all. I hosed my 7s trying to swap out the external adjuster... Had the carbon levers nd no extractor. Wasn't fun. I believe they also sent the wrong kit - for XX not XO. I think the XO kit may have worked, but that's moot at this point. The Hopes are what I am going with, they are on the way!

    Thanks folks!!

    If you use Hope Step-up mount 'F' for 160mm rear on the front it will work perfectly with 180mm rotor. So you need 2 Hope 'F' mounts for your current rotors.

    unnnnnnnhhhh....

    Nothin's ever easy is it? Yep - the Manitou is a post mount.... i am e-mailing Hope Tech!

    Thanks. I wish I had a local Hope dealer with stock on hand! Most i have called don't do a lot with Hope, its a "i'll order it for you" type thing. Understandable, as they aren't cheap.
