Spokes In The Way Of Disk Brake Assembly

None of you has ever had a problem with the inside part (the inside adjustment screw) of the avid brake being in the way of the spokes (even with all the best adjustments)?? :P

'cause I am stuck now, with brakes I can't fit unless maybe I rebuild the front wheel with a different hub. The horizontal spacing (or depth) between the disk holes and the spoke holes is about 7mm on my hub (megamo). What is the clearance on yours??? It was already limit even with the louise magura piston, with the spokes feathering it. In the mean time... riding with no front brakes :D

What hubs do you have? What spacing...

Megamo hubs are known to have that problem, they were designed around the old single piston louise caliper, so the clearance is much less than the ISO standard. Anything modern will have the right amount of clearance :D

Wouldnt bank on it, the BT/viz/whatever hubs are basically a copy of the bikegas ones, just with more clearance. American classic hubs weigh naff all too, quick spider has one for sale in the buy/sell bit :D
