    Shimano center lock brakes and Easton EA 70 XC 6 bolt wheels?

    I've searched and found lots of info on adapters to go from Shimano center lock rotors to 6 bolt but what about the opposite? Is there an adaptor to make 6 bolt wheels work with Shimano center lock mechanical 160 mm brakes/rotors? The wheels are new to the bike and I'm already using a 15 mm to 5 mm axle to fit my dropouts.

    Just buy the six bolt Shimano rotors. I don't think it is possible to get a centre lock rotor onto a six bolt hub for spacing reasons.

    You can't put centerlock rotors on 6 bolt hubs and there is no adapter that will allow you do it.
    If you buy 6 bolt hubs you will also need to buy 6 bolt rotors.
