2011 epic rear brake mount 29er?
I am in the process of building up my new 29er epic comp and I am having trouble mounting my rear brake caliper (Avid). It seems I need spacers really long to bring it up enough to accommodate a 160 rotor. Anybody do this yet and how did you get the spacers and a longer bolt? Should I just check out the local hardware store?

have your local bike shop get these on order
BTI part #: AV-7232
fits: fork/frame, PM-140*
•Adapts Avid 74mm calipers to fit various forks/frames and rotors
For mounting Magura Brakes on a PM140 rear frame use a QM 6 adaptor
Ha! you are right. I failed to copy the right link.

I'm pretty sure it's a 185 post mount adapter:
160 to 180/185 is the same as 140 to 160 and those are post mounts on the rear. Use the longer bolts that come with the adapter.
