Does anyone make an 8 inch adapter for Manitou?

430 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  bdee
I currently run an 8 inch Hayes rotor up front on my 03 Marzocchi Z1 FR and am purchasing a MANITOU SHERMAN FIREFLY PLUS '05 (killer deal at and was trying to find out if an adapter is made for a regular QR, not a 20mm TA. Does anyone know if the 20mm TA adapter will work alright? I'm thinking that they might not sell it as a way to cover their arses because the powers that be don't recommend using an 8 inch rotor up front due to some mechanical failures over the years.

Any input or advice would be appreciated.

According to the chart on Hayes website the 8" adapter works with either QR or 20mm. The adapter #98-15072.

Here is a screen shot from the chart...(this refers to the 2005 Sherman series)

Thanks, I called Jensen and found out that Avid and Hayes use the same adapter and ordered it, only $10, not too shabby.
