    140mm rotors on R5 Disc

    My R5 currently has 160mm rotors, but I’m considering sizing down to 140mm. Would it simply be a matter of removing the caliper adapters front and rear? Does the front caliper require an adapter, even for 140mm? Thanks again, forum.

    Not 100% sure but I think you just have to flip over the mount-adapter and re-install the calipers. You should see an arrow pointing one way for 160mm and flip it the other way for 140mm.

    That's correct. Flip the adapter so it positions the mounting holes for the caliper lower on the fork and rearward on the chainstay. The adapters are marked so it should be pretty straightforward.

    I was thinking both front and rear.

    Assuming the R5 and S3D has the same mount, I can't figure out the rear. The adapter is longer than the caliper and if I turn it around, the screw holes doesn't much up.

    Only front adapters have to be turned if going from 160mm to 140mm or vice versa. Rear adapter just has to be renoved to go to 140mm from 160mm.
