    Avid DB7

    New guy here so go easy on me, are the 203mm going to fit on a stock 05 FSR XC? Is $199.00 a good deal? (Brand new in a box)
    Thx!

    For front and rear, yes. For one wheel, no.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I managed to grab a BNIB front for what comes to $80 or so but that was rare, so 199 is allright for the set esp if you get SD levers.

    I'd first ask your fork's manufacturer if it can handle a disc set up that size. If so(but probably not) then I'd go with it.
    [SIZE=3]No offense to KB, but if I see another "Strong, light, cheap. Pick two" line on this site...

    [SIZE=2]No offense to thieves, but if I see another "Ride it like you stole it" line on this site...[/SIZE]
    [/SIZE]

    First off, welcome to the mtbr boards!

    The 203 mm set up is pretty much used for downhill and freeride purposes, and is designed to be used with forks and frames that are built to withstand the abuse this kind of riding can dish out. For XC purposes, don't go over 185 mm, and that's assuming the stanchions on your fork are at least 30mm (some are only 28.6mm). I run the 185mm on my Marzocchi, and have had no issues. They mount on standard ISO mounts without any special adapters. As for the price, if you can get a set (not a pair) for $80.00 or less, it's a decent deal, IMO. Be patient, shop around. There are great deals on ebay, just make sure you buy from a vendor with a high feedback score and positive satisfaction %.

    Here's an example if you want a pair (front and rear):

    I hope this helps.
