    Crash replacement frame. rear brake question

    I broke my 2009 firebird in the front and rear triangles. Pivot sent me a 2013 frame.I am running 203mm Formula brakes. The new frame is a direct mount. Do I just stack up spacers? searching and cant find an adapter. Am I limited to homebrew or 160mm>?

    You just need a post to post adaptor. Plenty of those to choose from.
