Hi all.

Just got some Marazocchi Super T Triple clamps but my brake adapter dosnt fit , iv had a look round and cant find where to get a replacment.

The brake is a Hayes Caminaro Hydrallic.

The forks have two holes for a the adapter to be screwed in but its straight into teh forks rather than onto the side if you get me , Will upload pics tonight.

    Think you need one of these, depending on your disc size.

    Monster T?

    they are post mount 7" what size disc are you wanting to use

    if 2007 Super Ts then yes they have 6" post mounts and the caliper bolts directly to the fork for a 6" disc.

    which the Super Ts looked like. they were a step up from the junior T.

    Anyone ?
  • nicklousenicklouse Posts: 50,675 Lives Here
    the answer has been given already.

    so you have not got a means of measuring them?

    well they are not 160/165 or 180/185 so that leaves the 200/203/205 size. and as they are Hayes they will be 8"

    Shivers were upside downs yes, and available in both dual crown and single crown.

    They also had a funky MX style stanchion protector.

    oh have you looked in the FAQs at any time.

    Well as i have managed to pick up its an 8" Disc , Im not the one answering the questions and i managed to figure that out from whats already been posted....

    I'm showing an IS Fork as that's the mount on the brake at the moment , i was querying whether the adapter you say i need ( Post to post 8" ) goes straight onto the brake and totally replaces the existing mount or with it being such a large disc i thought i might need one to go from the post mount on the forks to the IS Mount already with the brake ????
