    Hope floating rotors with Magura Martas

    Does anyone know if hope floating rotors will work with Marta calipers? I've done a search but cannot find any threads on the subject.

    I do know that the floating rotors will not work with Hayes HFX 9's in case anyone was wondering about that.

    Not sure about the Martas, but i know they don't work with '06 Louise FR- the rivets hit the bottom of the caliper, if the Marta is smaller then it may work. Just order some and carefully try the disc, use three old rotor bolts and dont damage the packaging, then send them back if not.

    They could be made to work with the J5.You will have to file a bit of material off the adaptor to clear the rivets.

    I read a post in another forum that said that they will not work with the Marta calipers.

    If you remove some material from the adaptor then the gap between the adaptor and the disc becomes larger
