    Idenitify and Win it.....

    can you identify the hand writting on this package? Or name what this part is?

    If you can and have need for it, it's all yours.


    In all fairness to OTE....the Kenda Nevegal 2.1 I bought rules even if the shop was closed and the guy that sold it to me didn't even work there! [that's service] More improtantly the part I was asking for was quite obscure.

    Adaptor that lets an Avid disc brake body mount on the rear. The body is the same for front or rear disc brakes, the bracket is what make it F or R.

    To be more specific.... it's a brake adapter to adapt from standard 74mm post mounted discs to 51mm ISIS holes.

    Think I'm right :-|

    Don't make a 6" mount. Just a 160 mm (plus 185 & 203 mm).

    you win the adaptor. =)

    b/c it's not the correct part to convert my rear avid to work with a 160mm rotor instead of a 185mm. My guess is that it's not a avid adaptor, which is why I'm curious if anyone can identify the real use of this part.

    Quite right, that's not an Avid adaptor.
    Actually looks like it could be a Shimano adaptor.

    Modify it

    File a notch into it, and use it to open beers. A much more noble use than mounting brakes.

    Definitely not an Avid...I have Avid 160 & 185 adaptors for both front and rear and they are more rounded looking and actually say Avid on them as well as "185 Rear Mount" or something like that.

    (after birghtening the picture)

    It's an Avid front adaptor. Front adaptors have the notch. Mine (160mm) has no designating marks. Someone at OTE exchanged the parts?

    Avid has made both the machines type shown and the rounded edge forged mounts. It is an Avid.

    If the spacing on those holes doesn't match the spacing on the holes in a regular disc mount it could very well be an adapter for mounting on the older "standard" from before the disc mounts got really standardized on the current spacing there's enough older frames and forks still out there to need such an adapter.

    No worries. I'm back in MA now. I managed to bang my 185 rotor back into action so I could finish out the trip.

    Shiggy is correct in that Avid makes a version that would in principle look ver similar to this. I have one on my recently built HT. The holes are all in the correct places to line things up so its for the correct style of mount.

    What's "wrong" with it ffor my Avid caliper is that it forces the caliper to sit too close to the axil. i.e. the "posts" on the ends to attach to the caliper are too short. Visiable when compaired to the other machined style Avid bracket that I have.

    I was just curious of some other manufacturer made a similar piece, and if so, wiether some one in Passion land had use for this piece of metal.
