    Alfine and 140 rotor

    I ordered an Alfine a few weeks back from the LBS. Meanwhile I also picked up some XTR brakes off Ebay for the build. I have the 140mm rear rotor/calper set up and was wondering if anyone has heard of any clearance issues with my choice. Looking at pictures I think I'll be fine, but the XTR caliper will be sitting 1 cm closer to the hub flange than a 160.

    Should work OK

    I am using my Alfine hub with a 140mm rear rotor as well, but it is a Hope Mono Mini, not XTR. I cannot say for sure but I would think it should work fine. Couple pictures of my setup:

    Thank you so much for the photos. It is definitely close though. If my XTR caliper is no fatter than yours I'll be fine. :-(
