    I have a specialized Hardrock 2010 Disc, but i want to upgrade the brakes to the hyderos, because no matter how much I try and Adjust the brakes on it at the moment, they always seem to rub a little bit

    My only problem is I keep reading IS or post mount, I dont want to buy the wrong ones

    I checked the website where I bought the bike, but it doesnt mention what mine are

    Is there an easy way to tell ?


    also im looking at some Hope mono 6Ti brakes on that infamous Auction site… Are these rated good as they seem to be going for a decent price at the moment

    The mono6 Ti is a bloody good brake, i’m sure they would still be producing it now if it didn’t cost so much to manufacture.

    Couple of thigs to bear in mind, the rotors are non-standard sizes, you can use normal rotors with it if you have to (I do, cheaper)

    Don’t worry too much about the mountings too much, chances are you will need to call hope and they will be able to suggest the right mount/s you will need.

    I would suggest the rear on your bike is a standard “IS” mount, which means the Mono6Ti will bolt straight on, you will need to mess around with spacers until the caliper is centered.

    No idea on the front brake, I dont know what models they are releasing next year 😆 best bet is to call up hope with your fork model and let them tell you the mount you need.

    They are definately not a simple bolt on affair though, and to be honest, I’m not sure a low spec hardrock really needs six pot calipers, not being funny or anything, just I know the rest of the componants on the bike are not really up to the sort of action you would require them brakes for (my other half has a 2009 Hardrock Disc)
