    Nimble 9 Gen 1 slider

    I went to build up my Gen 1 today and couldn't mount the rear caliper. The slider doesn't have any upward facing surface for the caliper to mount to.

    My LBS stripped this bike a while back so this should be the slider that was on originally. Is there another piece to the slider that's missing? Maybe it got lost at the LBS.

    Racefit- You just need the proper brake adapter. The "proper" one will be determined by the size of your brake rotor.

    We also still have N9, gen 1 post brake dropouts in stock if you'd prefer to mount your caliper direct.

    Yeah, I am guessing you have a Post Mount mount brake caliper, and that is standoff for a IS brake. Good luck trying to find a IS to PM Adapter.

    A brake adapter converts an IS mount to post mount, this is the norm and easy to find.
