    I'm looking for a Hayes adapter

    Does anyone make an adapter that will allow me to use current brakes on the old Hayes type frame mount? I think it was called the Hayes 22mm mount or something like that.

    Hayes does make this adapter. Your bike shop can order it from QBP. #BR3958

    Actually, that adaptor is so that you can use a 22mm hayes brake with an IS frame. The 2 bolt holes on the 22mm side wouldn't be threaded if it were the other way around. Actually, non of the holes would be. I've looked into this before and have not been able to find an adaptor that lets you use IS brakes with a 22mm hayes mount frame.

    Sorry for the bad advice. I actually have one of those parts and was looking at it later yesterday wondering too how it would fit because of the threaded 22mm mounting holes.

    If you have H ayes calipers, you could buy just the new 22mm caliper. Might be the only solution.

    Will be the only solution. From what I've heard, the adaptor was too complex to make, required a custom rotor, and had a tendancy to snap the chainstay. Some companies tried it a few years ago and it just didn't work out.

    Don't worry about it. Having to use only a Hayes brake is what I was trying to avoid. I'd like to try a different brand, so I guess I'll have to just buy a new bike.

    We have the adapter you are looking for, the AD-PMR. You have to use a 180mm or 185mm rotor with it, and depending on the space between your chainstay and seatstay, may have to use a smaller hydraulic brake like Hope or Magura. I try not to post blatant ads for our products, but you do not have to buy a new bike. You can order it online from our website. www.discbrakeadapters.com
