    New question here. Are new shimano centerlocking hubs able to use older style rotors?

    Hi,does anyone know if you can bolt up the older style rotor to the new style Shimano hub?Can new and old style discs be bolted up somehow to the new style hub.Not sure if that piece can just be screwed off or what.I want to run a 180mm disc and have the new style hub.Shimano only makes the 160 and 203mm discs for the centerlock.Am i SOL or can it be done?
    Any help would be cool.
    Thanks

    I believe that it is not possible. I could be wrong, I just dont see how it can be done. I havnt heard of any adapter, and shimano sometimes makes parts incompatible with other companies so you have to use their stuff.

    Magura are to produce an adaptor for Shimano splined hubs to six-bolt disc rotors, I don't know they may already do it.

    Problem Solvers...

    (aka QBP ) makes an adapter to mount 6 bolt rotors on centerlock hubs. Does not fit Saint hubs(no big suprise) but they also say it does ot fit XTR (M965)/ XT(M765) WHEELSETS ?! which are slpined, the whole point of the adapter !? Oh well, check it out.
    that rug really tied the room together.
