    I used it for a while on a Surly hub and eventually bought a disc hub. I modified it a bit by filing a rasied area on one side so I could mount it backwards to better positon the rotor. Anyway if you want it it will cost you $5.00 for S&H.

    question about the adaptor

    If I remember right, didn't you have issues with it spinning backward if you had a backward pressure on it...which is expected? Is it too wide to use with a fixed side of a flip flop hub, so you could throw the reverse threaded lockring on preventing backspinning?

    I ran one on as Airborne SS - Surly hub for a few years. I had to re-space the axle a bit to make it fit properly. I also had to put a torque arm brace to keep the whole thing from rotating.

    If you try to hop on the rear wheel, the adapter will spin loose. Regular hill holding is OK, but sometimes it'll come loose then - not a biggie unless you like to hop/rock on your rear wheel alot. I tried making it work with a fixie hub, but the adapter is pretty wide, and there is not enough room for the lockring as the rotor & torx screws interfere. Potentially you could drill, tap, and put a set screw into the threads, but then you may as well just get a proper disc hub...

    Cheers,

    Tom

    I am only using the Disc adaptor part for my wheel. I have no experience with the frame adaptor part. I have not had an issue with the adapter unthreading, but I put it on tight with a small bit of blue loctite.
