    XTR Post Mount question???

    I've used the search function but cannot seem to find the answer.

    I just got a new bike from an online retailer and I ordered a 180mm XTR post mount front brake. Well, the bike came with a 160mm front. So... does Shimano make a 180mm specific caliper or is the 180mm post mount front brake just a standard 160mm caliper with an adapter? Thanks

    I would like to stay away from the adapter if possible.

    for a 180mm setup you will need an adapter (the PM adapter is the ame regardless of rotor size)

    is the rear mount IS or is it one of the new bikes with rear PM mount?
