    I need a shimano disc adapter, any ideas?

    I'm set up to be running an 08 XTR post type caliper on a post style fork (29" Fox) except that I can't find the proper adapter. QBP is out until April or so.

    Does anyone know where I can find an apapter to make a post style shimano caliper work w/ a post fork w/ a 180mm rotor?

    Can I use an off brand version with it? Formula makes one. It seems like it'll line up w/ a Shimano, but I'm not sure if caliper will rub the adapter somehow.

    Is this what you are looking for?

    CRC is very good ... if you are not happy with anything you got from them, they will be happy to give a full refund excl the postage of course unless it is their fault. If it is something they have confirmed will fit and eventually it does not, then they will give you a full refund plus the return postage.

    But postage is very expensive to US. It is free for us here in UK.

    Sometimes I wonder if working with a machinist for custom parts not be a bad idea. I wonder just how much extra it would cost to get that 73.5 11degree uber material steam, or try titanium rotors, some crazy stuff like that... hrmmm looks like a google search for me!

    But if the cost is 50% above MSRP price faghetaboutit.
