    this is an IS caliper




    this is a postmount caliper (postmounts with an adapter can be mounted to IS mounts)

    you will need an adapter to increase the size, but the current rotor size and caliper style is needed to find the right adapter...


    EDIT: you could also post some pics of your current setup and we figure it out together

    then you nedd a +40mm IS-to-IS adapter to use 203mm brakes

    for example

    http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=13746

    though I am almost sure magura makes one too..

    Those adapters work for any 160mm IS caliper, so they work on the back too..
