Just bought a hope c3 brake set off ebay, im waiting for it to arrive but was ust wondering if there are any differences in the front and rear calipers?could you bolt a rear caliper to the front (obviously you would need the correct leaver)

    the diference is 10mm.

    have a look in the FAQs for the brake topic. (page 2)

    but generally they can be with the correct size disc and adaptor in needed.

    Thanks Nick, I was just thinking about putting the bigger 4 pot brake on the front and buying the 2 pot hope front brake but didnt know if the mounting where the same and i you could just swap them over (with the discs as well)
