    Around what year were forks with IS brake mounts "phased out" by post mount ones? Only times I see IS is on some old steel rigid forks these days.

    Check Google.
    I have a 1998 Marzocchi Z2 alloy Atom Bomb that has those mounts.
    Pretty sure it's been a fairly long while since suspension forks had them, but some rigid forks have them now.
    You're talkin squishy forks, right?

    Wait, are these basically the same as post mount, but with a 180mm IS adapter? Toss the IS adapter and it's basically a 160mm post mount brake?

    Got to love these confusing things... BlueSky trying to test customers with trivia or something?

    yes. Every brake I've worked with were made like this. minimized amount of brake caliper models you need to make.
