    question about rear disk brake adaptor?

    What do I need to purchase to install a 8" rotor or rear of bike. I know its an adaptor, just not sure which one. I have Hayes Sole system. Also what do you cats use to tie down the cables. Tape? Tie Straps? etc.....

    thanks

    Looks like universal cycles has one. However to get better advice people will need a pic of your bike, brake mount and cable stops. Lots of options for tying down cables. I tend to stay away from the zip ties bc I don't think they look good and it can scratch the frame something fierce. Hopefully that gets you started.

    Why are you putting an 8 " rotor on that bike ? IMHO a 6 " rotor should be fine for anythink short of extreme D.H.

    What's with the tape? Zip ties give a much cleaner look...

    yea I am using the 8" rotor because that what I got when I purchased them used. I am trying to save a few dollars and buy the adaptor instead of a new rotor

    If you don't want to buy the adapter, because that bike should run a 6in disk in the bake, I am sure someone around here has a rotor you can have for 10$ or so. I know I have at least five old 6in rotors in my pars bin with plenty of life left. It will save you some weight too.
