Living the Dream
Is the avid CPS 74mm post fork bracket for the adapter I need for my firefly fork?
I am looking for the correct adapter for my 185mm rotors for my new sherman firefly. Thanks for any help.
I have got Sherman firefly forks and just bought the avid mech disk with a 185mm rotor

Avidís larger rotor sizes (185mm and 203mm) are compatible with Manitou forks but require an additional caliper mounting bracket. Avid offers
these brackets and they are available through your local bike shop.
Note: 185mm and 203mm rotors require a caliper mounting bracket that is specific to Avidís 2002 and later calipers. 2001 calipers are not
compatible with 185mm and 203mm rotors on Manitou Forks. I got mine from WWW.CHAINREACTIONCYCLES.CO.UK they are in Northern Ireland but will ship any where in the world. Hope this helps
canadian web retailer, has the adaptor you need for cheap. its actually hard to find apparently unless you order it in specially and pay full price.
Unfortunatly they sent me the wrong adaptor. They sent an adaptor for a 203mm rotor
so have had to send it back and ordered the 185mm adaptor. will have to wait and see if this one comes
