    2010 Boxxer Race - which Avid Adapter?

    Bought a sweet Boxxer Race fork for my downhill bike but can't figure out which adapter I need for hooking up my Avid brakes. Prefer not to talk to the shop guy for GOOD reason! Which adapter do I need? Can you take a picture of it for me??
    Thanks,
    J

    Actually no, the Boxxer no longer uses the "Boxxer" adaptor. It uses a standard adaptor as of 2010. Out of the box the 2010 Boxxer is setup for post mount 6". Use the avid 203mm adaptor for post mount if you're running 8" rotors.

    Okay, that's what I did and it still doesn't work. Needs spacers to make it fit because there is still 1/4" of space there. I wonder if it's because these are Juicy 3's?

    You need to use the avid adaptor with the avid cps washers as well. It's an Avid thing.

    I was missing the washer kit. I've got it and will install it soon. The "cupped" washers must make a difference to the install angle of the caliper.
