    180mm Shimano Disc Brake Adaptor/FSA Afterburner 386

    So I want to put a 180mm rotor on my front wheel (currently sporting a 160mm rotor), and am wondering what sort of Shimano Adaptor I need to buy to make that happen. My current fork is a Manitou Minute 29er that does not need an adaptor for the 160mm rotor. Thanks for the help.

    p.s. Anyone using the FSA Afterburner 386 crank on their 29er? What are your thoughts about gearing?

    I used the 386 in the 27/42 combo for the Iceman race this past year- great crank, but after the first 20 or so miles, the hills got to me since I had pushed the 42 on the first part (spun out with the 27). I would have been better off with the 40T, but replacement rings are rare and expensive. You can get 26 and 39 rings for a normal crank and have more flexibility with ring size.

    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.
