    Brake adapter problem

    I posted to the general forum about this and was told to go here so here it goes, I bought an 06 fox f100 rlt and am replacing my busted suntour with it. My problem is that the mounts for the brakes are different so I was wondering if they made adapters for this problem, I know that my friend who has an f80 runs avid brakes on his and they work with these mounts but a brake upgrade isn't in my budget right now. Oh and my brakes are tektro Aquila they are from 09. I will post pictures of the two different mounts when I can get to a computer

    No need to post pics. The suntour is probably post mount - the caliper bolts directly to the fork. The fox has tabs and requires an adapter. Look at your rear brake. The fox has the same tabs. You can see the type of adapter needed. They come in different sizes for different sized rotors, so get the one that fits your rotor.

    i think your Aquila caliper is post mount and your 2006 F100 RLT fork is IS mount. so you need something like this ...
