    Formula Mega rear with Avid 185 mm rotor?

    I'm considering upgrading my AM bike to Formula Megas from Avid Elixir Rs. Right now I'm running 203/185 rotors. The 203 will be fine, but Formula doesn't make a rear IS adapter for a 185. I would think popping in an extra couple of washers would be enough for the caliper to clear the rotor. Has anyone run a rear Formula brake with a 185 mm rotor? If so, what worked for you?

    You should be fine using your Avid adapter and rotor. No need for the Formula adapters, front or rear.

    Makes sense...all manufacturers design their calipers to run without adapters on 160mm rotors, so they should just drop in place. I'm glad I won't have to blow $40+ on adapters. Thanks!
