It's not an engineering oversight. I've tested this fork on two different bike brand models in the last 12 months and both brands supplied an adapter with the fork/bike so that the conversion, whilst a bit fiddly having to re-align the brakes, works perfectly. I would suggest you contact your fork retailer and ask them for the adaptor or perhaps talk to a different shop and see what they have. If they sell Colombus Futura Cross forks you might be lucky as i'm pretty sure it's the same rake adjustment on that fork.

I have the same frame (no-label purchased directly from the factory) and the same fork. However, the offset adjust made no sense to me. When you change the offset the brake pads no longer align with the rotor. I even had my bike shop attempt to figure it out; they tried all manner of adapters and nothing fit. You could add a couple long spacers at the expense of flex and vibration. I'm convinced it is either a huge engineering oversight or someone forgot to include an adapter brake mount. 

 

 

 

 

Hi can I ask you for details of factory and process etc ? I like the frame did not want any labels graphics etc why sponsor companies for zero? also given the issue with the offset would u buy again ?
