    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?

    Not even close!
    I've only seen on the fly ghetto fixes, not sure what the pro solution is. Spec must sell something.

    For mounting Magura Brakes on a PM140 rear frame use a QM 6 adaptor

    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.
