    avid XO 180 rotor to 160 rotor

    What would I need to convert a 180 xo front brake to a 160 front brake. Besides the obvious 160 rotor, do I need a new adapter?

    Most front disc setups are ready for 160mm without the use of any adapters. The caliper bolts right to the post mounts with the hardware provided and you use the 160mm front rotor.

    Just curious why you want to go to a smaller rotor?
    It's such a fine line between idiocy and genius.

    if the fork has studs you need nothing, though maybe shorter screws, if it's the tab you'll need a new adaptor
