    White brothers snow pack and salsa enabler hub

    Is it possible to get an adapter or a spacer to get these two to play nicely together?

    White brothers snow pack and salsa enabler hub

    The button heads on the included longer bolts in the Bikeman spacer kit didn't clear my White Brothers fork.

    The fork was purchased one year ago. I am using an Avid HS1 rotor, which is a little thinner than the G2 & G3 Avid rotors. My hubs are year old Salsa 2.

    The silver colored bolts included with the spacer didn't have thread locking compound applied. With a thin coat of blue "Locktite" applied the bolts threaded into my year old hub a little to easy for my peace of mind. By that I mean by-hand all the way. I tried the bolts in other hubs with the same super easy to thread-in, almost loose, feeling.

    Other than the bolts I was pleased with the spacer's looks, fit and feel.

    I am in search of thicker, fast-drying, blue, thread locking compound and longer Ti rotor bolts with a flatter profile head.

    You can also get the White Bros. adapter that moves the caliper towards the rotor (the opposite of the Carver spacer above). But it limits you to post mount brakes and requires the use of a 180 rotor:

    You can get loctite in stick form. Loctite 37643. It is like a crayon.

    Thanks for the Loctite info. I also have the WB adapter. I was hoping to make it easier to switch between my different hubs, so I am trying the Bikeman adapters.
