    front/rear caliper for XTR M965 and M966

    Does anybody remember if it is possible to use the front M965 IS Standard or the front M966 Postmount also for the rear?

    I have to replace a rear caliper but can only find front calipers on ebay.

    Thanks!

    a front IS caliper for 160mm rotor will work in the rear with a 140mm rotor

    the PM caliper wil work fine in the rear, you just need the appropriate PM-to-IS adapter (same adapter that the current XT, LX, SLX, Deore use)

    Chain Reaction is selling the M966 post mount callipers for under $30 right now. I just bought 3 so I don't have to deal with the stupid shims any more. I called Shimano USA with a tech question about the M966 mounting hardware, and they asked where I got them. Apparently Shimano USA isn't too fond of Chainreactions pricing to say the least. I love it. Someone sticking it to shimano USA!
