    Front Disc Brackets

    Does anyone know if the brackets for front disc brakes are standardized???

    I want to swap out the 160mm to 185mm on my Cannondale F4 (RST Fork) and I already have an Avid disc and bracket (185mm) left over from one of my BB7 setups… the bike came with a TekTro Auriga (hydro) Brake System.

    Without taking the setup apart, it looks like everything lines up...any thoughts???

    If it is an adapter from 160 to 185, and you have an avid 185mm rotor then yes, it will work......as long as the fork leg has the same type of mounting arrangement as the adapter.

    Well I tried it and it worked with a little mod...wewhoo...upgraded the brakes to 185mm and it didn't cost a dime.

    THX for the input Alex, everything lined up perfect after adding an extra washer...
