    larger disc adapter

    I need to find an adapter to allow me to run 180 or 205mm discs on my front, there are quite a few I was just wondering if any of you have had positive experiences with any adapters

    Already have 200mm discs on the tandem. But the largest caliper fit I could get for the rear was 180. I made up an adaptor to allow me to run the 200mm's and it has been on for 3 years now, Whether I would trust one on the front is a different matter- but get in touch with the brake manufacturer to see if they make one.

    Another point- 180 or 200 mm on the front- definitely think of a bolt through axle. Then again the forks- will they take the stress that even a 180 will put it through? And even better- will the headtube be strong enough on the bike? Even better still- why do you need such large disc's?
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    freeride, and I'm on the heavy side (215).

    fork will be fine, getting either a PIKE or a 36 Vanilla, and the bike is going to be a Transition Preston, so strength isn't an issue.
