    Magura Marta 2006 IS front adapter

    A've got a PM manitou fork and magura marta front IS caliper. I think the year of manufacture is 2006, the caliper has long low arm. I bought magura adapter 3 and 180 mm disk, but they don't work together. As I checked than - that adapter is suitable only for IS calipers with short low arm (since 2007). I checked that magura doesn't have needed adapter.

    May be somebody has met the same situation and found the way out?

    Short arm IS caliper = 160mm front / 140mm rear?
    Long arm IS caliper = 180mm front / 160mm rear.

    Short arm caliper on the front with Adapter No.3 means a 20mm increase in rotor size to 180mm.
    With the long arm caliper (+20mm) on the front with Adapter No.3 (+20mm) you'd have to use a 200mm rotor.

    KCNC makes a 160mm adapter that might allow you to use your long arm caliper with a 180mm rotor.

    * this setup doesn't work with all IS calipers on all PM forks.

    Are there any US retailers or manufacturers that make this type of mount?

    I'll second the request for help in finding a US source for the KCNC adapter or equivalent!

    I have an older set of Magura Marta SL's with IS mounting that I REALLY would like to put onto a REBA Team fork with PM (74mm) mounts...

    Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Go to Magura's website and get the #3 mount and also get the larger rotor.

    Probably with the long arm caliper on the front with Adapter No.3 you'd have to use a 200mm rotor.

    It's a Mono Mini No.3, in the following photo you can see the difference between the No.5 160F/140R (short arm) and the No.3 180F/160R (long arm).

    Be aware that the 160mm adapter won't fit on all PM forks.

    thanks for the headsup. I'm trying to install my Hope mono mini (caliper #3) 180mm front brake onto a Fox 130RL (2011) postmount (trying to get rid of those ... avid elixir 5's that came with the bike).
    Do you know if it will fit?

    Good info here. I'm gonna swap out my IS fork to a PM one and want to retain my old IS Hope Mini and this will be a useful reference thread.
