Azonic Evolution frame/Shimano XT disc brake problem


Kinky Cowboy

I have a 2002 Azonic DS-1 Evolution and I just tried to fit
some 2002 Shimano XT disc brakes. Unfortunately, this is
impossible because the rotor fouls the caliper with the
wheel any more than about 1/2" from the front of the dropout
slot. This means I can't run the gearing I want, and I can't
remove the wheel without removing the brake caliper.

Any helpful suggestions gratefully received. I don't really
want to add an adapter and a larger than standard disc, but
I'd happily fit a 2004 XT or XTR caliper if it would solve
the problem.
