    Formula Brake Cable Length????

    08 Spot w/ 09 Talas up front. I am looking at purchasing Formula K-24's and I am not sure what front and rear cable length to buy. This is my first full suspension bike... so all you veterans please advise. These brakes come in different lengths and are pre-bled.

    Thanks in advance!

    You don't mention what size the frame is, but assuming it's not an XXL or something then the 850 front and 1500 rear lengths will be fine.

    Sorry it is a Medium frame....So would that be a 85cm and 150cm? Also is the rear adapter an IS adapter?
