This adaptor just seems big being that the DT Swiss EXC 150 forks are PM already, is this the right adaptor? I'm running 180mm on the front, and I saw a pic of the Magura forks with the Marta SL (180mm) brakes and there's no adaptor.

No they shouldn't..... Some people use 160mm rotors.

Can i ask why you "need" 180mm rotors though on that bike? From it's build im guessing its not getting thrown about much, from your pic you dont look too heavy. Have you tried a 160mm rotor on it ?

I had that adapter myself for my ultimates with a 180mm rotor - it looks terrible IMO ! I tried a 160mm rotor and stuck with it enough power for my needs.

Actually, it's not the right adapter, the brakes are Magura, the adapter is Shimano! LOL.

Thanks for posting that picture. I just bought the QM-6 adapter (Magura version), and wondered which direction it should be mounted on the fork (mine doesn't have an arrow indicating "UP" like yours)...
