    Default Feeler - Post mount fixtures

    Hey folks, I posted this somewhere else on the internet but we have a slightly different audience here, so I thought I'd repost

    I've been doing post mounts for a few years now as I'm sure many of us have. I made a 160mm PM fixture last year which has been serving me well and I'll be making more for 140 and 180mm mounts as well. Which brings me to the question...is there a demand for these tools? Do any of you want them? I can make my own crude tools and be done with it or I can have a shop give me a quote for quantities and sell them to people who need them.

    Here's my "prototype"

    P.S. I'm hedging my bets that 140mm rotors are going to come back when the big S companies get their shit together and start making hydro road calipers.

    I think you're right on the 140mm rotors - think cx/road ("roaders" - patent pending....)
    What about the height of the mounts - is that integrated into the fixture?
    Can the same fixture be used on the front/fork? Or would it be like the calipers and change rotor size by 20mm? (As in a fixture for a 140mm rotor on the back would set you up for a 160mm rotor on the fork)
    I'd probably want to get some.

    Thanks Sean!

    I think the same fixture can be used for frame and fork with a 4mm spacer between the fixture and fork tip. 4mm is off the top of my head and is untrustworthy but I'll chime in again once I have the details and the design figured out a little better.
