    marz adaptor help

    hi guys...i am stuck trying to fit an IS calliper to a post mount fork

    now i have found this. .http://www.bicyclehero.com/gb/shimano-7 ... 37000.html

    which looks like it will do the job

    but the problem/dilemma i have is as follows

    I have XTR 965 callipers which are IS and 2013 Marzocchi 55 micro switch ta forks which are PM, using a 180 rotor

    but i have seen that shimano make a marz specific adaptor found here...http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/shim ... prod107906

    (although the one in the picture is actually for boxxer forks)

    the code for the only marz adaptor i can find is SM-MA-F203P/Z

    but this adaptor is for marz forks, with a 203 rotor and a post mount calliper

    i need mine for an IS calliper, which would be something like SM-MA-F180S/Z

    does anyone know what i can do?

    please help!!!

    Here you go, same question was asked

    Where can I get this..!? Post mount to IS adapter...?
    You buy the SM-MA-F180S, it mates to the post mount of the fork for an IS caliper.

    I have a 2010 Marz 55 w/ post mount and a Shimano 755 IS mount caliper. Works just fine with the adapter.

    Read all of the following thread too.

    My ghetto rigged XTR IS (M965) to post mount..

    As you're in the UK: http://clee-cycles.co.uk/esite/P1043/product

    'Short Arm' caliper on the left = 160mm
    'Long Arm' caliper on the right = 180mm

    marz adaptor help-img_0425.jpg

    'Short Arm' caliper + 160mm adapter = 160mm rotor
    'Short Arm' caliper + 180mm adapter = 180mm rotor

    'Long Arm' caliper + 160mm adapter = 180mm rotor
    'Long Arm' caliper + 180mm adapter = 200mm rotor

    Also you can contact North Shore Billet, I have used their adapters on my bikes with no issue. Just give them the model Fork, Brake etc. and they may be able to help as well.

    They don't have any adapters to mount IS brakes onto Post Mounts, that's what the OP wanted.
    If they were able to custom make one of these adapters then I'm sure that it'd cost a lot more then what the commercially available adapters cost.
