brake fitting
#1
Hey,

I just fitted my new (ish) rockshox Revolutions, but they use a different brake fitting to the old forks (also rockshox - is there no standard?) if you were to stick a long bolt through the fitting hole on the fork it would protrude into the wheel, but the old ones point back towartds the rear of the bike, can i get an a daptor?

IS is the one where if you stick a long bolt into it it would get caught in the wheel

post mount is the one where the bolts face towards the back of the bike

what you need is a Post Mount to IS  ... what size brakes do you run as i recently took one of a bike and its sized for 180mm discs

if you do have to buy a new one look for a shimano one as they are around half the price !
