Disc brake alignment question. *LINK*

Posted By: Barry Wilson
Date: 18 November 2008

On the rear we have a Hope BigUn 48 spoke with the Hope Disc mounted to it via a 10 mm spacer. The spacer is 5 hole as is the rotor so its drilled with 10 holes, all neat and purposeful. But this spacer is not thick enough so the Hope M4 is spaced off the frame (Cannondale MT800) by 10mm worth of washers. Now this, whilst being very neat, still looks like a bodge to me. In all other respects the wheel as a whole fits the frame perfectly.

Is it common to have such a mis-alignment between disc and caliper such that spacers of this magnitude are needed?
