Can I change from 6 bolt to centerlock?

Six bolt or center lock wheels are interchangeable. You will probably have to realign the brake calipers so they don’t rub the rotor. Make sure you buy wheels with the correct thru axel or quick release as your current wheels.

Are all centerlock rotors the same?

No. The center lock spline on the hub is the same, only the lock ring is different. Lock rings used on QR hubs used a cassette tool to remove. Lock rings used on 12mm, 15mm and 20mm hubs used a shimano bottom bracket tool.

Why is my caliper rubbing my rotor?

Pad/rotor rub is the main symptom of a misaligned caliper. However pad/rotor rub can also caused by an improperly seated wheel. Make sure your wheel is seated properly. Elevate the bike, spin the wheel, and sight the gaps between the rotor and pads.

Is centerlock better than 6 bolt?

Centerlock rotors are typically a few dollars more than most 6 bolt rotors. Centerlock rotors are generally easier and more error proof to install. One simple lock ring versus 6 small bolts to get cross threaded or stripped or lost or whatever else happens to these things.

What is the difference between a 6 bolt and a center lock?

Six-bolt does have the disadvantage that bolts getting seized, heads getting stripped, and/or hub threads getting damaged are all things that happen sometimes, whereas centerlock tends to be free from any such problems. Having one big high-torque fastener does create a more reliable interface in that sense.

How to fit a new center lock rotor?

7 Fit the new rotor When fitting a splined rotor it is important to get it the right way round. Center Lock rotors have a stepped alloy centre section and this must face the hub. Getting it wrong will place the rotor too far inboard, and it won’t fit back into the frame and calliper.

What’s the difference between center lock and 6 bolt brakes?

The hub’s rotor interface is only an attachment method between the hub and the rotor. So long as that rotor is delivered to the place where your brakes expect and want and need it to be, which both formats do, the brakes themselves don’t care at all whether your hubs and rotor are 6 bolt or center lock.

Can a 6 bolt rotor be adapted to a 6 Lock rotor?

It is possible to adapt a 6-bolt to a center-lock rotor, but it is not possible to adapt a center lock to 6-bolt. Scroll to the adapter section to learn more. Loosen and remove the rotor bolts using the appropriate wrench. After all the bolts are safely out, remove the rotor.

What’s the best way to fix a disc brake rotor?

The Upgrade Centerlock 15/20mm lock ring provides an inexpensive, trouble-free, universally fitting way to fix a disc brake rotor to your centerlock equipped wheelset.
