I have a newer set of Avid XO brakes and was wondering if KCNC makes a lighter caliper adaptor for 203mm. It is for a Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon. I'm a heavy guy and need the extra stopping power of the larger rotors. I will be tuning everything else that I can with titanium. I have noticed that my current mounts have a ton of material that could be removed without degrading structural integrity and KCNC seems to remove every bit of unnecessary material.

Could you post a few links? So far it looks like Hope and KCNC machine away the most material.
This is what I have now.
