    Help with Niner Air 9 BRAKES

    Hey guys, I'm needing to replace the front and rear brakes on my Kermit Green Scandium Niner Air 9.

    I've found a very good deal on a rear Shimano XTR Trail (M988) set, but I'm still going to need to find a comparable front.

    Any additional brackets needed for mounting these brakes to my bike?

    I'm also very open to other brands, but I've always heard the XTR line is quality.

    I've got very little experiance in this arena, so any help you guys can provide would be quite helpful.

    You need the Shimano IS mount for your size brake rotor for the rear, and whether or not you need one for the front (once you purchase the matching XTR Trail brake from your LBS), will depend on your rotor size and fork brand/make/model.
