    Brake Adaptor Help ??

    I just installed a Rock Shox Tora 318 Solo AIr on my Trek 4300. I got through the entire install and was trying to mount the front brake caliper to the new fork and I realized that the caliper does not properly mount to the fork. I believe I have figured out that I need a brake adapter to get the caliper to mount correctly.

    The Tora has a 51mm SI Disc Mount and the front brakes have a 160mm rotor. Does that mean I would a brake mount like this one:

    It seems very straight forward.... Just want to be sure I was on the right track so I can getting this thing running ASAP! Thanks.

    There's a good chance an LBS would have one in stock. I know I've got a few of them.

    if it looks straightforward, then you're probably on track. of course, we don't know what caliper you have.
