    Avid 203mm post mount to RS domain (help please)

    It may be a silly question but, I've never set up a post mount before. This brake functions fine, but looks wacked! Am I missing parts (if so, what?) or do I simply have something set up backwards? the setup is avid juicy 5's, 203 post mount to a 08' RS domain. Any help would be appeciated. Thanks. Steve

    See that arrow on the adaptor? It is supposed to point in same the direction as how the wheel rotates. I think yours is on backwards.

    Oh man, I didn't even notice your CPS hardware earlier - it's all jacked up, seriously, holy crap, you need to fix that.

    ...haha...nice way to put it!...I never actually went more than ten feet foward on the bike with that crazy setup...I knew it was not right...so I got this thread up right away...had a killer ride this afternoon with proper front brakes. Thanks again.
