Coda disk brakes


Hello looking for someone that has replaced there coda disk brakes and kept their original 4 bolt rotors and or levers etc. finally got the rear caliper working right to stop me and it siezed from heat on a big hill. Time to replace it. The bike is a cannondale lefty and I would like to convert to another disk brake system as cheap and effective as possible. Anyone bin there?

Thanks Norco, that was helpful.

I don't know if there is an adaptor, but if you want to change to a five bolt, you will most likely have to buy a new hub to convert. Of course, if you can still find a four bolt rotor and/or aren't changing your rotor diameter, there's no reason to swap the hub. In other words, you can keep your four bolt rotor and run a different caliper.

BTW- that has to be a hell of a lot of heat!

Yea I spoke before with bike shops about the hub swap out. Two different shops instantly said I would have to buy the 5 bolt hub and rotor and I don't know why unless the rotor is a smaller non-standard size. I know riders have done this it's well known that the coda system I have is sub par. I seen a cannondale blog I'm heading there. Thanks...
