Fewer bolts equals less work.
Shimano's centerlock brake mount is solid and makes for a great way to fix the brake rotor to your hub. But if you've already got a set of nice disc brakes with 6-bolt rotors, you can use this Shimano Centerlock to 6-Bolt Disc Rotor Adapter to make all of your parts fit together.
This adapter kit includes a splined rotor mount that slides right onto the splined portion of your Shimano centerlock hubs. Six studs capture the rotor and a six bolt washer, lockring, and circle clip hold it all secure. You can use a standard Shimano lockring tool for installation and removal.
The Shimano Centerlock to 6-Bolt Disc Rotor Adapter includes the parts necessary to install a 6-bolt rotor on one centerlock wheel. You'll need two of these adapter sets to do one bike, front and rear.

I've tried the DT version of the center lock adapter and it ended up having play in it after awhile. Have you had any issues like that with this shimano one?
The Shimano CL Adapter uses Steel Pins to Prevent the Play.
