    185mm Avid Mech w/ qr20?

    Anyone know if you can run a 185mm Avid mechanical with the '04 qr20. I have seen the adaptor for the 203mm that is specific to the qr20 but I already have the 185mm. Even with the spacers that came with the fork I couldn't get the caliper far enough inboard to clear the rotor. Any info would be great. Thanks.

    Get more spacers and longer bolts. Shim it on over.
