    Flash Carbon Owners w/ Formula R1's: What rear brake adapter?

    Looking to mount some Formula R1's on a Flash 29er. What adapter to I need on the rear to run a 160 mm rotor? Will a 180mm front post mount adapter work?

    You need a Formula 160 Rear Post mount adapter. Make sure it is a rear 160, not a front 160 post mount. I personally use a 140mm rotor in the rear with no adapter.

    I use the 180 adapter with no problem. I believe the cannondale shimano adapter should work also.

    Formula makes a 74mm post adapter to take you from a 160mm to 180mm rotor. The Carbon Flash frames are built to accept a 140mm rotors. If you use any post mount adapter that is designed to adjust an extra 20mm it works fine. If you order the Formula adapter, it comes with the longer bolts too. I have done it, it works perfect.
