I have a 2011 Trek Cobia with a RockShox Recon 29 w/Solo Air Fork and Promax Hornet Hydro brakes. I am 6'8" and ~295lbs. The 160mm front brakes can't handle me. I wore through the pads in under 3 months and I am not getting the stopping power I want. So for now, to play it cheap, I want to just replace the pads, get a larger rotor, and a bracket to make the caliper fit. Problem is, I am a bit confused as to what adapter I need for the caliper.
I was looking at these...
Amazon.com: Avid CPS Disc Brake Mounting Bracket: Sports & Outdoors
However, I am confused as to what I need. The fork says post mount everywhere I have found online. The front tire is quick release though. I guess I am not sure what the difference is between front, front post, and front QR 20mm. Trying to decide what I need.
Any help would be appreciated. I searched through some threads here a bit, but didn't find the answer I was looking for.
