    5 spot max rear disc size?

    Hi all.

    can someone tell me what the max disc size is for a 2010 5 spot please.

    I just want to find out if its possible to run a 203mm rear disc.

    thanks

    If you need more than a 180 on a trail bike you have the wrong brand/model of brakes.

    Thanks for the reply Mr DT.

    The options I have with the brakes I'm looking at are 160mm or 203mm discs.

    They are both on offer over here at Merlin cycles.

    was hoping the 203 would fit just until I can afford to downsize the rear rotor!!

    Brakes are 2012 formula rx by the way!

    Not sure what you mean by that?

    I am a big lad at 250 pounds.

    What it wrong with me owning a 5 spot?

    I think Mrwhlr is talking about DT being on the wrong bike...

    Just ignore him.
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    Im not sure what Mrwhlr meant either...

    ...looking at the Merlin deal there 'renton', if you are going for the 203 size you will also need to buy a extra post mount adaptor (for the rear use) as the deal comes supplied with one IS adapter (as they assume you are not on a frame designed by someone who knows what they are doing).

    Here the link to where you can get an adapter for the 203 rotor 17
    Formula Front 203mm PM6" Adaptor | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com

    or you could get their 180 rotor + adapter kit for 37....

    options, options.
