my bike came with 6" Hayes stroker Ryde's.
i jacked up my front brake at santos and as an anniversary, i got a replacement front brake in an 8" rotor.
i didn't order the caliper spacer at the same time though...DOH!
looked on pricepoint and found the adapter for 16.99 + shipping
called AJ's last week, talked to a guy, told him my situation and asked about the adapter/spacer. he said he could order it if i called before monday.
forgot to call before monday
called today and the guy said that an 8" rotor wont work with a quick release skewer and its a strict policy (or something like that) not to put 8" rotors on bikes with quick releases.
he then said that it wouldnt work because the spacer/adapter is meant for bikes with thru axle's and due to the discs being about 1/2 inch different in location (side to side), that if i got the adapter, it wouldn't work.
my caliper that came with my 8" rotor is on my bike now and working 100%
the spacers/adapters i've seen on pricepoint, don't look they they have any bend to them to relocate the caliper that 1/2 variance
what do you guys think? the spacer is only $20.00
