    Disc Brake Help

    Alright I found a 8" Hayes rotor to replace the existing 6". Now I need to find the correct adapter. And i'm a little confused.

    Heres the rotor: http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/129...#39;'-.htm

    Now I need to find an adapter. And help? I have a Haro Extreme X3 and I'm looking to replace the rear disc brake. I'm assuming I can use the same caliper so I don't want a package, I want seperate parts. Thanks

    Might not work.

    Before you do anything else, why don't you mount the 8" rotor on your wheel and see how it fits on your bike. I'm not familiar with that particular bike, but I suspect that an 8" rotor won't fit on a bike that was designed for a 6" rotor.

    If it looks like it will fit, my next call would be to Haro tech support to ask if they know the correct Hayes caliper adapter.
