    no adapter needed...

    i could be wrong here, but you should not need an adapter.the fork is set up with post mounts so you should be able to simply bolt up the caliper body to the fork (remove the black anno adapter in the photo). If you are using a 180 rotor i think you need to use the avid rear brake adapter...check out out Avid's instructions

    good luck

    You probably already saw my e-mail, but this picture confirms my instinct. You need to remove the adapter (black thing) thats on that brake, the caliper mounts directly to the fork now. Keep those conical washer on there and mount it up (just must make sure you have a substantial amount of threads in there, those bolts look kinda short).

    Ditto the others.

    Plus mounting brackets are part of the brake, not the fork, and are supplied by the brake company

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
