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?
