    IS or Post mount brakes on my bike?

    I've ordered a 2013 Giant Reign 2 that should be here by the end of the week. I'd like to upgrade the front rotor from the 180 to a 200 (or 203) and use the old front rotor on the back to replace the 160. Does anyone know what mounting adapter type I'd need for the front and back? I'm not sure if they are post or IS type mounts.

    I should also ask what rotor I'd need too. There seem to be a few different ones to choose from.

    Thanks!

    Both f & r are post type but remember the adapters are marked with an F=front and the r=rear, atleast in most cases they are however this being a 2013 it could very well have changed. You can see pics in this link.

    The photos I posted on the following link might be worth looking at.
