    Adapter to go from 6"-8" rear rotor??

    I have Hayes 9's. I'm looking for an adapter so I can run a 8" rear rotor. Anybody have one they would be willing to sell or know of an online retailer that carries them??

    Thanks

    here you go http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...79&category=25

    you probably need the "V8 - Rear Int Std to 8" 98-15074"

    Do you have an 8" front rotor? If you don't, then making the move to 8" isn't a great idea. You want a bigger rotor in the front, not the rear...

    EDIT: And 8" is A LOT for the back...

    actually i have an 8 in the front and the rear. i'm going to be putting a 6 in the rear as soon as i can find a good deal on adaptor and rotor!
    I just like riding my mountain bike.

    If you haven't bought anything yet, I've got an adapter sitting about.

    Also make sure your frame (rear swingarm) has clearance for an 8" rotor - not all frames do.
