    replacing stock fork-- Little help

    I posted a thread in the DiamondBack section but my question may get more traffic here.

    My question is about my current brakes working on a new fork as the mounts are different.

    Here is what I posted on my original thread:

    Now im having trouble figuring out my front brake situation. The brakes I have mount diffrently to my current fork. Im not sure what kind of mount it is but its different than the mount on the fork im looking into.

    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...Turn+Fork.aspx
    Is the fork I have decided on. Based on the reviews, price and the riding I plan on this will be just fine.

    Now the brakes I have are Hayes HMX-4 disc, 6-inch rotors. And will not mount directly to a standard mount on the tora.
    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...e+Adapter.aspx Is the adapter I beleive would solve my problem.

    Anyone have any experience doing this or any other input?

    Also heres my original thread if anyone has any input on my other questions.

    Check your other topic, it might be the wrong size. That adapter is 173mm.
