Got a set of the brackets in the group buy the other year and only just getting round to the stage of fitting them but can't find the thread, which calipers is it that they were designed for as on the will wood site there's quite a selection of powerlite calipers :?

Cheers

The thread has been deleted for some reason. The brackets were made by jhot80. I'm in the same position as got brakets but no calipers yet.

Can anyone remember if you have to run spacers with this setup? I have in my head that you have to space the brake discs out board by 3mm?

No need for spacers to get these to fit mate, wheel spacers may be needed depending on what wheels you have.
Think 5mm needed for a pepperpot, I had jbw 4 spokes with no spacer.

Why are the 120-8728 31.8mm bore size used and not the 120-8729 35.1mm bore size?

I used 31.8mm because it worked with the MCs in my pedal box.
