    for an older hayes G-1 rear caliper with 22mm mounting bolts to accomidate a 180mm rotor on a SC Heckler with IS mounts. Anyone know...i have been looking all over the internet and cannot find one.

    New caliper and maybe a different brand. Hayes doesn't make adapters for 180mm rotors. But if you get standard post mount caliper, you should be able to use an Avid 185mm adapter for the rear.

    You can still find caliper halves out there for the G1's. I would check Universalcycles.com. That way all you have to do is just buy that and the adapter and not the whole caliper. You will have to rebuild what you have tho, which might take a little wrench science.

    But that caliper is for a 160 rotor. Since Hayes doesn't support 7" rotors, there are no 22mm mount +20mm adapters.
