    2005 Tassajara rear disc mount?

    I'm switching over to Avid Juicy 7's. It looks like my '05 Tass does not have an IS mount for the rear caliper. Do I need some sort of adapter?

    Here is an adapter I found on ebay. The frame in the pic looks identical to the rear dropout on my bike.

    I wanted to update this thread for anyone that does a search in the future so here goes.

    I ended up bypassing mechs (everyone told me I'd want to upgrade sonner than later) and the cheaper Juicy 5's (lack of adjustment) and picked up a set of Juicy 7's. Got them for $155 shipped brand new from a guy on eBay. I also picked up an adapter bracket from a guy on ebay. It's this one; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWNX:IT

    The adapter came with the required hardware and mounted to the rear of my frame with no problems. This essentially is a bolt-on IS mount. The caliper mounts directly to the adapter with no issues at all.
