    XT rear brake help ...

    Trying to setup an XT rear brake, 160mm rotor, post mount on frame. Which adapter would work for this config? Getting a little confuse, just want to make sure and not get the incorrect one.

    It is my understanding, that without adapters, the rear post is setup for a 140mm rotor and the front is 160mm correct?

    No, I think it is set-up as 160 post mount without adapter.

    180 post/post adapter for the rear to run a 160 rotor. Without an adapter, there is no clearance to run a 160 rotor.

    What bike is this? I am running 160 XT rears on a Turner 5-spot without an adapter.
