What a piece of junk (old Giant)

I ran an A2Z adaptor with a 160mm rotor on a GT Aggressor, I can't remember if I shimmed the bolts up with washers or filed back a brake post adaptor.
The issue is the chainstay tapers in too quickly and the disc makes slight contact at 160mm (sounds like a meat slicer). I might be able to push the stay out slightly to clear with some washers.

And now for its 3rd set of forks.

From right to left:

1996 RockShox Judy C with Total Air Cartridges (80mm)
2006 RockShox Recon 351 (100mm)
2019 RockShox Recon RL 27.5 (100mm)

Still have one last rebuild kit for the Judy's Total Air cartridges. Not game to use them for myself but they may well see some action on one of the kids bikes.

Just on eBay. Seller ez_bike in Taiwan. I made an offer which was accepted, and then found a 10% off eBay code. Shipping was free and was at my house just under 48hrs after I ordered.
