    I need adapters for elixir 3's for 180 mm rotors.

    I have a post mount recon silver fork, and IS mount in rear

    I cant seem to find the proper adapters.

    You can actually use any 180mm post mount adapters, I'm using a Hayes right now on my Minute 140mm with Elixer 3's. Prior to 2012 (I think) Avid used 185mm rotors, but now they use 180mm. Also, the caliper accounts for the CPS washers by being offset a bit which is what lets them work with any brand.

    Yea this is the 185 you were talking about: Avid Post Mount Disc Brake Adapter Oe > Components > Brakes > Brake Adapters | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    I want to use alligator 180 mm rotors.

    Avid CPS Brake Mount | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com

    if you look here,
    what does the first number mean?

    its says 20 mm then on the next one it says 40mm
    is this the size of the bolt I would be using to bolt on?

    Most forks have 160mm post mounts
    160mm + 20mm = 180mm
    AVID Adapter Postmount +20mm | 160mm -> 180 mm | 140mm -> 160mm, 7,50

    Most IS mounts on frames are 140mm
    140mm + 40mm = 180mm
    AVID Adapter IS auf Postmount +40mm | VR 200mm HR 180mm 25g, 7,50 &eu
