    Intense Tracer 2 dropout kit to convert to 650b

    I'm looking to convert my tracer 2 to 650b using the dropout kit.

    I notice however the kit only contains a brake adaptor to run a 160mm disc.

    ideally I'd like to run a 180mm disc so is there any reason I can't add a brake adaptor on top of the 160mm mount to make up the 20mm

    What shop is this you are referring to?
    I'm in the UK.

    That is good news if there is a dedication mount for a 180mm disc

    275 Conversion Kit- 180mm Brake Adapter

    Here you go mate, straight from Intense. Looks like they are out of stock at the moment but I'm sure they will machine some more. Give them a call instead of email and you will probably get a quicker answer.

    Hope this helps. FWIW, I'm running Hope M4 with 203F & 160R rotors on my T2 convert and absolutely love the setup. Although if the 180 adaptor was available at the time I would have gone 203/180, but no regrets at all with current setup so I wouldn't change it at this point.

    180mm Rear Brake Adapter

    The part currently says "out of stock" but this should be changed today as we do have inventory of them.

    Hey Sam, hope you and the crew had a solid end to 2013. 10 days off from work has allowed me to catch up on a few things including a couple quick MTBR replies

    Back on the trail this afternoon.....

    Many thanks, this is excellent news. It means no messing around with my rear brake.
    I'm going to get this brake adaptor and dropouts ordered.
