    Increase rotor size Scalpel Si carbon 2

    I want to increase the Shimano rotor from 160mm to 180 or better 203mm size. But i cannot find the right solution with the brake adapter. I already checked the Cannondale documentation, but this is not clear to me.
    My bike is a 2017 Scalpel carbon 2 with Lefty 2.0. On this bike the both rotors are 160mm. The original brake adapter installed, is the KH111. I want to increase the front rotor to 180 or 203mm. Has any one has solved this issue? I think the use of ordinairy spacers js not so idea....

    Looks like it should be KH130 from the Dr. Cannondale website:

    Adapter Lefty 36 27.5 ; 2.0 29er SuperMax Hub, 180mm Disc

    I can check for sure on my SI-5 when I get it back from the shop...

    But as I read it,
    Supermax Hub: KH111 —> KH130
    Standard Hub: KH112 —> KH131

    I am gonna try this. Same solution, adapter from 160mm to 203mm.

    Thank you for the reply. These adapters are not easy to find, i ordered this one in France.
