    Marz 20mm adapter???

    Alright I have obtained and possess many brake adapters from over the years - but I do not and can not find the adapter I need.

    I am running the shimano 4 pots (51mm IS) and will be picking up an 09 Marz 888 WC which has 74mm post mounts. I have been searching the web and getting frustrated. I know someone out there knows where to get one.

    HELP! I want to ride next weekend...

    I think that is going the wrong way, (PM calipers to IS forks, when you want IS calipers to PM forks). For what you want you need to increase the rotor size by at least 10mm over the standard.

    The trouble is that it looks like the 09 888s use a 203mm rotor as standard and I think this buggers up your chance of finding a bigger rotor.

    Edit: this site was posted in another thread recently: http://www.a2zcomponents.com/02produ...dapter_03.html. If you can find the 220mm Hayes rotors the second adapter should work, although the outer edge of the pads will sit 1.5mm above the rotor.

    the problem with the pads sitting higher is that when they wear down to that point the ridges formed on the pads will prevent the brakes from grabbing. if it uses a 203 as standard the youll need a new caliper because any adaptor will increase the rotor size needed
