    Which shimano 8" adapter for Hayes Sole?

    Hi All,

    Been reading lots in these forums. Great information!!!

    Like some of you, I'm looking to upgrade from 6" to 8" rotor on a 2005 Gaint Reign 3 for a Hayes Sole. Hayes doesn't have a 8" Sole adapter.

    I've read that Shimano adapters work, but have not found any models numbers or pics. I've found a couple. Which of these of do you use? I have a '06 Fox Float RLC fork.

    Pics of your Sole mounted would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Well its for sure not either of those. If you are using the stock fork then doesnt have an adapter. So you need a post mount adapter that goes from 160mm to 203mm. Both of those are IS adapters for IS calipers.

    Edit here you can see a picture of the adapter mounted to the caliper here. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Hayes-SOLE-H...QQcmdZViewItem

    The OEM Hayes So1e on a '05 Giant Reign has a different mount (side-screw mounted). The So1e for retail has a top-screw mount. Don't know why they did it this way.

    I've attached a few pics (two front, one rear).

    I have the set of Hayes sole here sitting on my lap that I just removed from my 05 reign 3, the rear is IS but the front is Post Mount. So both of those adapters are incorrect and wont fit unless he has some other type of 05 reign 3 that doesnt have manitou splice elite forks stock and post mount front caliper.

    That may be the case for the Manitou Splice that was on the original, but the Reign 3 that came out with the Rockshox Tora fork comes with IS mount.

    Mine is identical to crc408's images. and the adapter i posted works. i will try and get some pics tonight.
