Strengths:    I took from one SPECIALIZED ENDURO and put in one KHS TANDEM ALITE with one AVIB bb7 mechanic.Works perfect and great visual!

Weaknesses:    nothing to declare.

Bottom Line:   
I change the V-Brakes for disks in one frame without adapter for rear disk and the braking performance becames better a lot. Thanks for the SPECILIZED engineers!!!
I think people ho have very nice frames without disk brake adapter and want to feel disk brakes should buy it.

Strengths:    Easy to Fit, and Fits some other Specialized Bikes not Mentioned. Fits my 00' P.3 Nicely although I had to Use a Front IS Adapter Instead of a Rear as The Caliper wasnt inline with the 160mm Rotor

Bottom Line:   
Buy This Adapter, Works GREAT!

Submitted by Rick a Weekend Warrior from North Van, Canada

Date Reviewed: December 13, 2004

Strengths:    Works pretty well, no flex to speak of

Weaknesses:    With my Shimano XT 755 calipers I couldn't use either the 160mm or 203mm rotors. Just so happened that a Grimeca System 8 180mm rotor fit perfectly though!

Bottom Line:   
Allowed me to use disk brakes on the rear of my otherwise diskless bike. Works as advertised.

Date Reviewed: April 3, 2004

Strengths:    its the only way to get discs on 99-00 FSRs besides the dangerous aftermarket stuff.

Weaknesses:    i used all the wavy washers but the rotor still scraches the suspension joint bolt. it'll be nice if they have post mount version, so i dont have to use double adaptors

Bottom Line:   
get it if you have i bike that needs it, don't if you don't(kinda pointless, why get something you dont need)

disc brake adapter for '99 Trek 8500 LT

I've got a '99 Trek 8500 LT and want to put a disc brake on the rear. It has 22mm disc caliper mounts on the Chain Stay. Does anyone know if there is an adapter that will allow you to use a 51mm caliper. I have heard different things...some say you have to use a 22mm Hayes hydraulic disc brake, and ... Read More »
