    Brake Question on 16 Farley 7

    I recently did a good number of upgrades on the Farley. Moved to Eagle GX; new Cane Creek headset; Duroc Wheels'DT 350 hubs with Hodag's for 3 season riding; and added a set of Hope brakes.

    All went well but I was unable to install the Hope 180 rotors. The adapters I had were not correct. What adapters do I need to get enough height for 180 rotors?

    Sorry if the question seems like wtf you don't have a clue. I know you need adapters and I tried a 185 adapter and it won't work. Maybe this will help describe the issue.

    Possibly you were using a rear brake adapter.

    Can a 180 fit the rear with the slider?

    I think you just need 20mm post to post spacers and longer bolts...
