    Default Interesting brake mod

    I've recently been reading through lots of forums on Hope brakes (I'm looking to trick mine out a tad) and found this kinda groovy mod. Not sure it's entirely necessary though if I had the tools I'd probably do it;)

    I like that.

    Doesn't help the main issue I see - adjusting Avid callipers with the two sets of conical washers (one under the adaptor and the other under the calliper) on 200mm front rotors. Do guides come with this setup? Please no.

    Avid BB7 whilst being powerful cable brakes were the shittest thing ever do to their mounting and centering setup.
