Brake in your Xtracycle
Want to set up your disc brake mountain bike to an Xtracycle? The Basic Disc Kit is all you need to make a standard disc brake system (160mm rotors) work with your Xtracycle.
Xtracycle wanted a solution that kept the integrity of the tubing, allowed maximum flexibility of brakes, and gave high-strength high-reliability performance for your Sport Utility Bicycle. This involves spacing the caliper 21.5mm further from the hub to allow use of the rotor. This means that a disc brake caliper designed for 160mm rotors will now be in the correct position for a 203mm rotor without any modification or adapters.
For brake systems other than 160 mm, you will need to get the appropriate adapter to use a 160mm rotor. For example: an Avid system designed for 185mm rotors can use a 160mm caliper mount, available at your local bike shop. Not all brake systems are as modular and adjustable as this, but there is a solution for most types of brakes, including Shimano, Hayes, Magura and Avid.
