    In search of a source for a Magura Louise Post Mount Adaptor

    I just picked up a Mars Elite fork to pair up with an old 2001 Schwinn Rocket 88 that my girlfriend rides primarily but that also fits me. The bike originally came with a Zoke from the original owner and that fork went on my son's bike.

    Brakes are 2001 Magura Louise with 6" rotors and IS mount calipers.

    I need to find and buy a post mount adaptor in order to run the Magura disc brake up front. Can anyone help me out with a source to purchase one?

    Will it be a major PITA to find one?

    Any help would be hugely appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Mark

    Easy to find, but you'll need to go 180mm on the front rotor

    Cheaper than a caliper

    zoke doesn't endorse it (at least until the 07 32mm models), but I used a 180mm in my MX and Marathon without issues.

    hrmmmm....maybe I'll move this pair of Hydros to a different bike and get something else for this Schwinn.

    Crapola.

    As I recall, the 2001 Julie is a single piston brake...I would be seriously surprised if it caused any problems with a 180mm rotor on that Mars. Post Mounts are way stronger than IS mounts and that brake doesn't generate huge amounts of power. If the rotor clears the fork leg, I don't see any problems.

    Woops...but still a single piston

    My bad on the confusion, but the Louise is still a single piston as I recall with an adjustable inboard pad (like most mechanicals). So I still don't think it'll be an issue on the Mars to run a 180mm rotor...as long as the rotor clears the lower leg.
