    Its not the quick change hub that won't fit, when they sent me the skopod rear brake adaptor they sent me 1 proper lenght bolt and 3 shorter bolts. As for the slick rime, where would I be able to get the hub for PMT rims that have the 6 bolt rotor adaptor, the adapter currently on my PMT rims is the standard 4 bolt.

      I am not sure what to recommend about your bolt issue, other than to contact who you bought the adapter from or try to go to a bolt supplier and get bolts that are long enough. As for the 6-bolt PMT hubs....Trevor Simpson makes 6-bolt or I.S. standard hubs. They are not cheap, and they are not made in large quantities so they may not be readily available.

        ADA corrected the "slightly off" bolt pattern on their regular billets. The newest ADA billets actually have the holes slightly enlongated so the Rear Quick Change sprocket hubs and the Skopod MTB Brake adapters work great on the wheels now. Additionally, MikeR has a few sets of alignment tools that work with the MTB brake adapters that make sure they are perfectly lined up. Not many people know about the tools MikeR made but they are the best alignment tools I have ever used.

          TS hubs are front and rear. Front is set up for 6 bolt rotors. Rear is set up to bolt to a sprocket.

          You can use spacers off the sprocket to bolt up a MD rotor or a DS 160mm rotor or...

          Use a Skopod MTB adapter for MTB rotors

            Here are the Hydros that I got. They are downhill moutainbiking calipers so there are cooling fins for the pads and designed more for the abuse that I think we put on brakes for Goped riding. Now the disc is another story.

              If you don't get hydros get a set of avid bb5's or bb6's. They'll come with a 160mm rotor and they are great for the price. Also if you do stick with mechanical brakes grab a couple odyssey slic linear BMX brake cables or any brand "linear" cable, that alone will get you some stopping power and greatly improve the feel of the brakes. The cable doesn't bend or twist when you brake like the goped ones. All you have to do is cut em to size which it comes with all the hardware to do it. I'm running the ada 5 star wheel in the front and ada billet in the rear with a skopod adapter. It's super easy to drill out. Just set the adapter on the wheel and it works as a template. It's not hard at all. Just ditch the Mad dog set up if you want some good brakes, besides the money you spend on replacement pads will be more than just buying a good set of avids which their pads last probably ten times as long. At least for me they do

                  i Just bought a 160mm front disk brake set up for my gsr. however the adapter that it came with does not line up correctly with the bothy fork. did you have to buy a 180mm adapter to make the caliper fit a 160mm brake set?

                        Nope! Bb7 works great, has more adjustment and works with any lever.
