Marzocchi Shiver 50USD issue

Recommended Posts

Obviously the adapter that came with the forks to make them a universal fit was for a regular size rotor.

the forks didn't came with adapter, I have the braking oversize disc/adapter and the stock caliper mount/disc and neither fit in the holes

couldn't find any caliper adapter in the braking website

You should braking directly and see if they have a set up. If the bike that these forks originally came off of used a nissin caliper, then they should have a set up for you.

The oversize rotor bracket wouldnt change the fork. It goes from the stock fork mounting location to the caliper, therefor where the mount attaches to the fork is technically the exact same thing as it would be with no bracket and just the caliper. 

 

The forks aren't a true direct swap if the caliper does not mount up to them. Bracket or just caliper should not make ANY difference at all. This also explains why the rotor is pressed right up against the pads because the hub offset is not correct relative to the left fork tube....

Great looking bike, don't get the blue hubs, but thats besides the point.  Where/what is the grip-tape looking stuff on your lower frame called/purchased?
