    Will this Work? Juicy 3's to 2008 XT Brake change

    Ok the Juicy 3's on my SC Heckler suck. My wife is going to get me some brakes for Christmas.

    I like the 2008 XT disk. I have IS on the fork with 185mm rotors front and rear.

    Can I just buy the Shimano IS 180mm adapter and make it work? Maybe add a couple of washers to make up the 5mm?

    Is the rear adapter the same as the front? Just buy two 180 adapters?

    Can I use my Juicy adapters on the XT calipers?

    Can it still work with the 185mm rotor and just be 2.5mm off the correct pad/disk area without the washers?

    Thanks for all your help

    you can use your Avid adapters if you plan on using your Avid rotors... no problem at all...

    The adapters are different for front and rear. 185 rear will be the same as 203 front. and 160 rear is 185 front.
    Look, whatever happens, don't fight the mountain.
