    Disc Brake Standard for Anthem X?

    Trying to buy some parts for my Anthem X3 build up and was wondering if all the X frames are IS standard for the rear brake mount? Just making sure since alot of disc brake manufacturers these days are only making post mount calipers. Thanks!

    It is IS in the rear. Post mount calipers require a very inexpensive adaptor. It is easier to adapt a post mount caliper to IS mount than vice versa.

    Yeah, all Giant frames are IS in the rear.

    All new forks are post now. Turner just went to post in the rear for his 2009 frames. Hopefully others will follow and that will be the new standard.
