    Hope rotor with elixir caliper

    Might be a dumb question but can I put a 183mm Hope rotor with an elixir caliper?

    I would bet there's gonna be 2mm of brake pad not being used.... if the Elixer is set at 185.

    You should probably use a Hope 183mm adapter.

    It should work yeah, plenty of people i know use 183 floating rotors on avids even with the 185mm adapter.

    I myself am using Hope "Pro" rotors 160mm which have a braking surface only 13.5mm wide - my avid pads are 15mm wide - yet the hope rotors work better than the stock avid ones.

    For best results though just use the Hope 183mm adapter.
