Hope hub help

Hi Guys, it’s my first post so hiya all!
I’ve got a hope disc hub, it’s currently got a 160 floating rotor on I think and I’d like a 180. But I’ve never seen a hub like this before so I don’t even know what I’m looking for. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

Jamie x

    I don't think you can get 5-bolt floating rotors anymore. To go to 180mm you need a Hope Standard 5 bolt rotor. Do a Google search and you'll find a few places selling them. Expect to pay about £30-£35 for one.
    Don't forget you'll also need a brake adapter to relocate the caliper.

    What would I bolt it onto as my hub has no where for it to fix? Where would I need to re locate the caliper? I have already fitted a IS TO POST shimano adaptor as my for are IS and the brake is have is POST mount

    That’d work, right?

    This won't fit, it's a 6 bolt rotor. Try these, not floating rotors but as JBA said you can only get standard rotors as you have an old (2000-2001) hope xc hub.

    Rush Cycles have 160/180/183 5 bolt rotors.

    Then buy a 160 to 180mm IS to post mount adaptor.

    Thanks so much for all you’re help, the pair of you have pretty put me in the right direction. I’ve already got the adaptor, that’s the reason I’m in this pickle 😄
