Enve Cross Disc fork with 180 mm rotors

Looking for some help here. I understood that many people are riding the Enve fork with 180 rotors. I'm struggling to find an adapter to take me from the 140 mm post on the fork to 180 mm.

Any help is appreciated.

try Paul Component EngineeringI would call them and explain what you need.
The guy I spoke to was really nice and helpful.
I did have to file down one of the posts a few mm to center the pad on the rotor but it looks great.
I would send you a photo but this is my first post.

I'd be leary of using a non-tandem rated fork on a tandem.

Rated for a 450 pound tandem team is not the same as being rated for upto 450 pounds.

Also: Is your fork rated for the extra torque of a larger rotor? To go from a 160 to a 180mm rotor is ~20% more torque on the fork blade.

I certainly would think long & hard about using something that far out of specs. Especially where it's more than just myself involved.

Your fork comes with 140mm rotors...that alone should tell you what the engineers had in mind when it comes to anticipated loads.

Think on it.
