    Hope 200mm IS caliper to post mount fork

    Have an older IS hope mono M4 for a 200mm rotor and a new fox fork with post mount. Is there any adapter that's out there that can make thus setup work or am I out of luck? I was thinking of the a2z adapter that allows you to keep a 160mm rotor but don't know if the spacing will work for 200mm. Hope tech support says this setup will not work with any adapter out there, just wondering if anyone had some experience with this. Thanks!

    Believe the Techs at Hope...

    they're good people and they know the product. Direct mount IS calipers for 160mm rotors are adaptable to post mount by using the correct adapter and bumping up the rotor one size up. However with a direct mount IS caliper set up for 200mm rotors there isn't a one up rotor, nor any adapter that will work that I know of. At least not for the older M4s. You could give the AtoZ a try, but there are no guarantees on spacing or rotor position. If the guys at Hope say it won't work, I'd trust their judgement.
