Is that a thing with IS mounts though? I don’t recall ever seeing or hearing of different rotor size IS mounts.
IS tabs are standard as far as spacing goes, but can be placed at different heights on the frame or fork depending on the manufacturer's minimum rotor size spec. Adapting for a larger rotor requires both lifting the caliper further from the frame/fork, and tilting the caliper forward lengthwise to match the rotor curve.

Just confirmed the IS mount holes are on a different radius between the frames. Learn something new every day.

Caliper seems to be out by 10mm so a PM160 rear adapter should sort it out from my guess

Have you got one? I reckon some of us might have one in the parts bin, I know I used to...

That would be me, yep.
After reading your thread it would seem that our issues are similar yet different.

Interestingly, my sliding dropout Marino hardtail had a warped brake mount which caused some grief, particularly since it is alloy and the only other person I have met with a Marino (which was years ago now) also had a problem with the rear brake mount.

Yeah seems to be a bit of a theme. Interestingly the first frame I had didn't have any issues, at least from memory.

Also, do I need a special type of shock if I buy this frame. Like the mounting of the shock looks strange
