    Disc brake mounts. Compatable?

    Just got a 2010 Trek Remedy 8 that came with Avid Elixr R brakes and 185mm discs. I'm changing over to Stroker Trail/Ace/Ride... Some sort of heavy duty brakes. If I use the Hayes 180mm discs will I need a Hayes specific mount?

    The fork has post mounts and the frame has the IS tabs.

    Thanks, Fahn

    The adapters should work, however since they are made for rotors that are 5mm larger in diameter you are going to likely lose about 2.5mm of brake pad contact since they will sit 2.5mm higher off of the rotor if the rotor sizes are true to their markings. I would say throw the Hayes calipers and rotors on with the Avid adapters and see if they do sit higher and decide if it something that you can live with. My personal opinion is I would get the correct adapters for the 180mm rotors I don't like to lose pad contact.

    I need to learn to read If you use the existing 185 rotor and adapter with the Stroker caliper you'll be fine.

    I think his Hayes specific mount threw you off. If he had said 180mm specific, you'd catch it.... more easily.

    Stroker Ride will be a downgrade from Elixir R. Trail will probably still be less power.
