    I just purchased a Koxx LB 1100 and love it .

    I want to buy a KOXX 190mm fork but what I want to know is.

    Do you only need a 190mm rotor or do I need to change my disc calpier to?

    I am know running a Hope mono mini 160mm.

    hope will make you any size rotor you want for only a little more than retail on their standard rotors. you can make an avid or hayes work with just about any size rotor. otherwise you are stuck with making a magura fit on the stupid fork.

    caliper will always fit a larger rotor you just need larger adapters to fit it.

    A Hope no. 5 Mini caliper with a 185 mm disc will fit on the Koxx 190 forxx. The no. 5 usually come with the 165 mm disc, so I think you just need a new disc.

    umm no! in combination with the no.5 caliper (for 165mm rotor) a 185mm rotor doesn't work. You need a 195mm rotor.

    I had the no.5 caliper, but I rode the 190mm magura rotor instead of a custom 195mm one. The pads didn't fully cover the rotor, but it was still fine.
