    What's needed to convert Hayes 6" to 8"?...

    I want to convert my front 6" Hayes HFX-9 disc brake to an 8" set up. I'm thinking all I need is an adapter that moves the caliper further back plus an 8" disc of course. I have a Marzocchi fork. Any ideas on where to get the parts? Thank you.

    If you have a Quick Release Marzocchi fork you will need the 8" QR adapter that the Rock Shox Pyslo uses. If you have a 20mm front axle Marzocchi fork you will use the 20mm hub "IS" 8" adapter for forks.
