    2 piece Hope rotors with Shimano calipers

    Does anyone know for certain if any new Shimano brake calipers work with these Hope 2 piece floating rotors?

    I found out the hard way my fancy new rotors don't work with my Deore M615 brakes. The rivets on the rotor that holds the two pieces together lightly scrapes against part of the caliper. I could do a little grinding and make it work but would rather just upgrade to XT brakes if I know they'll work with the Hopes.

    I took a chance and ordered new XT M8000 brakes. Hopefully they work with the Hope rotors on the Bluto fork. If not, I should still be able to use the brakes anyway just not with the Hopes.

    I've used the Hope rotors with M775, M8000, and RS785 calipers, and while the rivets definitely get really, really close to the brake post mounts, I've always been able to get them working with no rubbing at all.
