    Changed out Dart 3 for Voodoo Zombie need help installing disk brakes

    I changed out my Dart 3 for a voodoo Zombie and the mounts look nothing like whats on the dart 3. On the Dart 3, the female ends are strait out from the fork. On the Voodoo, they are simply smooth holes that are parallel to the wheels. What the hell do I need to mound the disk brakes? The first picture is of the dart 3 and the second is the voodoo.

I am going to change out to hydro brakes very soon.


    Here's how the brakes mount on the dart 3:

    click the link, it is the bracket you need to adapt your caliper to the fork, or go to your LBS to get one.

    The threads are in the adapter, you should be able to see how it works from the photos.

    yeah what he said.

    I remember the same exact thing happened to me when I upgraded my dart to a tora air. I was like WTTTFFF! walked into the lbs with brake and fork in hand and they didn't even glance at them... just handed me the adapter
