    disk brake/fork issues

    This past winter I had disk brake tabs added to a steel fork. I just got all the parts and put on the rotor to the wheel and in the fork. There is a very slight rub on the 160 rotor and the fork.
    So what are my options? My thoughts are to... 1, use a dremel and take off about 1mm of paint and steel from the fork. 2, is there any way I can put on a 140mm rotor? The adapters that come with the brakes are for 160 rear and 140 rear/160 front. 3, put a small spacer on the hub to spread out the left fork blade 1mm or so.
    What are your thoughts?

    My only suggestion is that you NOT remove any metal from the fork. The spacer doesn't seem like a bad idea and you can restore everything if it does not work out.
