Suffering from out of line mounts?, Spongy lever?, Squealing brake? All of these can be cured with "Spot", our new disc mount facing tool. We have seen many of these tools made by our competitors but felt many of them are overly complicated.
so we set about making a simple yet effective solution. The tool simply bolts into the rear dropouts and a cutter is fitted into predetermined holes to achieve perfect alignment. All this at a fraction of the cost of other tools on the market Cuts steel or aluminium.
Buy Hope Spot Tool from Chain Reaction Cycles, the worlds largest online bicycle store.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Works for me
I bought this tool 3 years ago and its been used on many bikes with great results.
These days with most brake manufactures either using post mount or adaptors its not getting so much use.
Oh and the previous person who said his cutting tool didn't have gold coating, that's just the protective waxy plastic all cutting tools have applied for shipping, you peel it off before using ;)

I bought this from crc to face my disc mounts and its done a perfect job, to within a 100th of a mm. Though check its mounted absolutely dead true and solid or the end result is pointless because your caliper will sit flat to the mount but crooked to the disc. Its a gd tool but i found unless you spray the lot with wd40 to preserve it it will rust very quickly. Wasnt gold tipped like pictured though

If you're desperate to make every effort to be the fastest out there, then having perfectly aligned brake calipers is handy, making this a must have. If i was given the option, i wouldn't buy this again as it doesn't really make any noticeable difference to the ride, but as i said if you want to be as fast as possible wether it means money or not, this thing does the job it's meant to and you should buy it!
