    Jabber and brake question

    I am pulling the trigger on a Jabber frame, and wish to run disk brakes. I am looking at the BB7's, and am wondering if I will need any adaptor kit so they work correctly with the rear set up. I don't imagine I will have problems with the front as I will be running a RS Reba fork. Thanks for the help.

    Same here. I run BB7's (160) in the rear and zero issues with mounting and operation.

    They are standard mounts. The only question is whether your adapter matches your rotor. If you're buying the BB7's new, they'll match up (a 160 adapter for a 160 rotor). You're going to love your Jabber.

    No issues with BB7's with 160 rotors on the rear of my Jabber! or the front for that matter!

    Ditto on BB7s on the Jabber.
