Disk Brake Spacers
#1
Good morning! I purchased a new mountain bike a few weeks ago and picked up a frame adapter so I could put it on my trunk rack. The problem is that the front wheel is really low. A hitch mount is in the future but for now I figured I would just remove the wheel.

My question is whether I should pick up a disk spacer or could I just use a chunk of cardboard? Not traveling all that far but don't want to screw up the new ride.
