    XT Brakes w/ Formula Rotors. Which adapter?

    I just bought some XT brakes to replace my Formula RX's. I was planning on using the Formula rotors which are pretty light. The front rotor is 180 mm. Should I use the Formula 180 mm adapter or the Shimano one? My gut was the Formula one. Thanks!
    Sometimes you eat the trail, sometimes the trail eats you.

    Thinking of buying a home?

    Whichever one you want as long as it's for the correct diameter rotor.

    My gut would choose the one with the same logo as the caliper.

    Dazed is likely correct, matching the adapter with the caliper safest. But I mix and match everything--rotors, calipers, adapters. Never a problem. Now, I just buy the cheapest adapter--which has been Magura lately.
