    What size Hope caliper adapter do I need?

    Hey there- Doing some upgrades, but plan to continue using my Hope Mono Mini hydro disc brakes (2007). Anyway, my new fork is the Fox Fit RLC 32 100mm post mount, and my frame is the Vassago ChubaChabra. I'm new to caliper adapters, what do I need to be aware of, how do I find the right one?

    ... sorry for the noobness

    IS to Post adapter...

    Hope Mount Adaptor Front IS to Post +20mm | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com

    This looks like it might work for the front. I definitely need:
    Front IS to Post (+20mm increase)

    The +20mm increase means I need to purchase a new front disc... 20mm larger?

    We need a pic of your calipers. IIRC there were IS and post mount versions of the brake

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    So if I use the Hope is to post front adapter I posted above, I will need to run a larger rotor? From 160mm to 183mm?

    With the +20mm adapter you'll need to use a 180mm rotor.

    Hope rotor question, do 183mm rotors interchange with 180mm rotors? 203mm with 200mm?
