    Hayes disc brake adapter????

    So I cant really make heads or tails of this. Could be because its late and been a long day but I just dont know

    http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/113...dard-Mount.htm

    Here is the story. I have 160mm on both front and rear of my bike. I wish to upgrade to 180mm in the front. I have a 2011 Rock Shox Tora 302 fork and Hayes HFX 9 brakes. Here is the question. Is this the adapter I want to buy to bump my front break to 180mm? I dont need a caliper that is sized for 180mm?

    Yep, get the 7"(180mm) adapter
    And no, you do not need a new caliper. Only difference between a 160m an 180mm brake set is the adapter and rotor.
