Been doing a lot of searching & a 63mm spacer does not exist at present, that would get a 160pm to 223pm but hopefully after Sea Otter it will! With all that being said it can be done with stacked spacers, I don’t like doing it that way but it can ... more »

I have a few NOS Hayes 223mm rotors and adaptors that I saved from the scrap pile at an old job. I promised not to sell them, but I suppose that I could barter some to help us both out.

I love it but, I’ll never be able to justify $2700 when I can get a Lyrik for under $1000.

But this is something I’d truly like to try just to know more about it.

This fork is so different that it is my belief that to truly see the full potential realized there will need to be a bike designed around this fork, our current bikes are pretty good with our telescoping fork legs.

With steering head angles getting slacker & slacker this linkage design may have many advantages.
