    Norco 22mm disk adapter

    Does anyone know what adapter I need to install a disk caliper (I have Hayes) with 6" rotor on my 99 Norco VPS frame with a 22mm seat stay mount? Any hints on where I can find one would be great too.

    Thanks in advance!

    If that your frame, those 2 holes aren't brake mounts -at least not that i know of. The 22mm direct mount is a threaded mount that is parallel to the rotor like post mounts but closer together. If you do indeed have a 22mm direct mount, hayes has on old caliper that mounts to it. You can find one on ebay occasionally for cheap. The 22mm direct mount looks like this:

    and you can find the adaptor here:

    If that's the case then I guess I'll have to get one machined, which I was hoping I wouldn't have to do. I didn't know about the brake mount situation and removed the V brake mounts when I refinished the frame a few years back. I've been sick and the bike has been siting in storage; now I want to ride it and don't have rear brakes, lol!!

    you don't actually need rear brakes. if you really want rear discs, there's the brake therapy adaptor you can use:

    or something else

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I removed the cantilever frame tabs that these kits index off of. I saw the 2 holes in the rear triangle and didn't realize I'd have a problem getting the brake that came OEM on the bike one level better than mine.

    i did a quick google search and it looks like the bikes you're mentioning only had a front disc. in either case, by removed, do you mean dremel or just unscrewing the studs? if you just got rid of the studs, a LBS may have them and you're not SOL. if you dremeled off the darn thing, i guess you really do have to machine a mount, i'd try to spread the load farther than those 2 holes though
