Hope Mono Mini w/180 mm front 2 piece compatibility Q

I'm looking at buying a set of Hope Mono Mini's but want to know how compatible they are with other rotors. Specifically, I'd like to know if the Mono Mini's are compatible with the Hope M4 2 piece rotors. Do they make an adapter for the front brake to work with the 2 piece 180 mm rotor?

Also, is it true that if you hang your Magura Martin SL Equpied bike upside down, the fluid lines will need to be rebled?

Thanks a lot!

Hope Mini can run the Hope 2 piece rotors....if you by it from a hope dealer or LBS that is one, they should have an adaptor for you.

I am not 100% sure for the Magura "Marta" I suppose you mean. But some hydro braking system cannot be turn upside down or else air will enter the system and you will get total brake failure.

if you bleed your brakes properly turning your bike upside down isn't going to harm it, I hang my bike upside down to store it and my hydros work great, now maybe it's different for the maguras but if you bleed your brakes properly shouldn;t have a problem
