    Which Adapter for XT M755 Front Caliper?

    So my new Niner fork is Post Mount and of course my caliper is IS mount. Is there an adapter I can obtain that would allow me to keep my 160mm rotor?
    Thanks!

    No 160mm adapter will fit your brake caliper it's far too big, only certain brake calipers will fit the type of adapter you're thinking of. You'll either have to get a bigger rotor with a suitable adapter or get a new brake if you want to stick to 160mm.

    Thanks again. Needed a reason to go with 180 for my Clyde ass anyway.

    If you don't want to go all the way up to 180mm, Shimano also made a post to IS mount adaptor for 170mm rotors. Unfortunately it's pretty darn expensive for some odd reason, like 5 times more than a 180mm adaptor. Mine came with my kit when I bought my XT discs around 10 years ago.

    It would've been cheaper to purchase a post mount caliper than to go the 170mm route!
