    upgrading my pugsley to 180mm front brakes

    I'm trying to upgrade my pugsley to 180mm front brakes. I got the new rotors, and the bike shop i talked to ordered me an avid 20IS bracket.

    Well, apparently the bracket isn't the correct one, and my rotor wont fit.

    Can anyone point me to the correct bracket that will let me run my 180 rotors?

    thanks!

    If you have the offset fork then you need a rear brake caliper adapter.

    20mm IS should be the right one.

    Well, heres the kicker. it seems like i already have the 20IS bracket on the front and rear. I will take some pictures to put up here, but with the 180 rotor it won't fit with the current bracket, and the new bracket is exactly the same as whats on there. I bought the bike used, so maybe someone changed something, but i doubt it. It looks like they never touched the brakes.

    If you have the offset fork then you need a 40mm IS bracket in the front to fit a 180 mm rotor.
