    Can I adapt IS to post mount?

    Looking for new brakes but I need post mount f and r. Lots of good used brakes but usually IS. Any ideas? Thanks, Harry

    Likely cheaper to buy post mount brakes than IS calipers plus the adaptors.

    Very few brake calipers sold in the last few years are IS-only (and many never have been). Most are PM and use a bracket for IS frames/forks. Remove the bracket and you have a PM brake.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
