    2012 ARC build question

    I'm starting to gather parts for the build, anyone know the Shimano part number for the rear caliper adapter with a 160mm rotor ?
    Also decided to go 2x10. Have SRAM 11-36 cassette, Raceface Turbine crankset with 24-36 cogs, will the medium cage x9 rear Dérailleur work, or will I need the long ?
    Any help is appreciated, I recently moved so this build will be with minimal help from a bike shop.

    It doesn't look like you need an adapter to use a 160mm rotor.

    There is a detailed explanation sticky in the drivetrain forum on derailleur cages.

    Thanks, found the forum on dérailleur cages. The older alloy ARC is not a post mount so I need an adapter that bolts to the side bracket. Looked on another vendors website and I figured it out, need the ISO frame, rear 160.

    Fork suggestions ?

    Build is under way and have most of my parts. I first thought I'd go with a 120 fork, after talking with the guys in a local bike shop who happen to be long time Yeti dealers, decided on 100 mm as the bike was designed for. My first choice was 2014Fox 32 fit ctd adj with 15mm thru axle, but have been tempted by the deals on leftover2013 32 fit terralogic forks, and the concept sounds good. The guys at the shop had nothing good to say about terralogic, but their experience was with earlier versions. I would prefer a fork that is consistent thru its travel that won't blow thru the middle, and not be harsh at the top. I'm happy with the RLC on my SB66, but regrettably it's no longer offered, any suggestions from other ARC riders ?

    Definitely 100, and I'd go an RLC FIT 32, very happy with mine.

    Thanks man, that's what I'm leaning towards, looks like I'll have to find a minty used one, or maybe my LBS could find a leftover.
