    8 inch front adapter on PIKE

    Hey guys, need some advice. Just upgraded my forks on my 05 reign2 to rockshox pike team air. Brand new, unused still in packaging off ebay for $600 Australian. The problem I have is fittng an 8 inch disc brake adapter. I bought one online that stated it was for 8 inch discs, I/S fork mount, 20mm hub compatible. Yet when I bolted everything up, the caliper (Hayes hfx9) does not line up with the disc, infact the caliper actually hits the spokes. The adapter seems too thick. It is actually about 15mm or 5/8 inch thick.

    What thickness should this be ? or is it the hub ? I've also got a new front wheel, Sun rims single track with dice roullette 20mm hub.

    Has anyone got any answers to this problem, any help is appreciated. Is it the wrong adapter, hub or am I doing something wrong, Thanks

    Did you get a adapter for smaller disc (180mm)? The mount is further out on Pike so a 'regular' disc adapter works straigt out on 20mm hub 203mm (8inch) disc. Yes, it's a bit confusing but practical, not the first time I see questions about this matter.

    Yep... you should use the 203mm adapter for regular QR forks on the Pike , no need for the "20 mm version"

    Yeah, ended up getting an avid 203mm adapter for quick release, not 20mm, as said in previous posts.

    I ended up having to have my mounts faced pretty significantly, after that, no issues
