Is it just me, or does Shimano just want you to buy a bunch of caliper adapters that you don't need, from them? They make it next to near impossible to find out what you need for your bike.
I'm trying to spec out a build on a Pivot Mach 5, and have a few questions that maybe you all that have dealt with this, could answer.
I plan on using 2009 Shimano BR-M775 calipers.
The fork is a 2009 Fox Float 140 RLC, which from Fox's web site, says will be a post mount.
I am going to use a 180mm rotor up front, which I believe, will require the SM-MA-F180P/P adapter, correct?
Secondly, for the life of me, I cannot tell if the caliper comes with the part labeled number "14" in the illustration, which I believe, allows the caliper to be mounted to the rear IS frame mount. If not, what is the part number of that adapter? The rear will be a standard 160mm rotor.
On another note, what is the advantage to buying the pre-bled kit? If the hoses still need to be trimmed, doesn't that defeat the purpose, or am I not understanding what a pre-bled kit is for?
Thanks in advance!
