    Light centrelock rotor

    There was a rumor a while back, published on this board I think, that Hope might be doing a lightweight centrelock rotor. Any more news?

    To me the centrelock system makes sence from a engineering and practical standpoint however I think the concept has be under exploited by Shimano in terms of potential weight saving.

    They must licence the centrelock standard b/c DT and Mavic are using it already on hubs.

    Did shimano licence both parts of the centerloc? Rotor and hub?

    I've seen pics of Hügi, Bontrager (again Hügi?), Mavic, and Shimano. For rotors... only seen Shimano OR adapters from DT, Problem Solvers, and Magura.

    I have no idea. I just assume that b/c Mavic and Hugi don't make rotors, they haven't made any. Perhaps youre right and the rotors are off limits? However it seems a strange distiction to make particularly as the adapters essentially do the same thing.

    Shimano seems to be about strange distinctions though.

    Shimano licenced the ability to make cranks, but the BB's were off limits when the supported the Octalink standard. I don't know if that answers the question, but it did happen.

    And IMHO Shimano hates adapters. They changed their shifters after the first bar clamps arrive, then they did it again after the revised bar clamps came around.

    Where does one get some of these adaptors??

    I assume they allow 6 bolt rotors to be used on centerlock hubs??

    Check your favorite local bike shop. If they can get DT spokes or rims, they should be able to get 'em. If not I've seen 'em at Pricepoint.

    Here's a write-up and some good photos of the DT Swiss centerlock adapter:
