    Adapter for Avid Elixer rear brake, 180mm

    Yes, I haven't searched the forums....

    I would like to replace the 185 rear rotor on my Avid Elixer to a 180mm. Avid doesn't sell a 180mm rear brake adapter.

    Any suggestions? Can I just use any 180mm rear brake adapter?
    I'd rather be hated for what I am, than loved for what I'm not......Dolemite.

    I am guessing you are going post mount brake to IS frame mount? In which case, any adaptor should work, as they are industry standards.

    Might want to check frame clearance though, as I am aware of some adaptors being problematic with certain frame/forks.
