    I hate Post Mount System!

    I have a Fox F29 with that stupid post mount system. I hooked my post mount Hayes up to that fork and the rotors is too far to the inside and is rubbing. I can push the rotor to rotor anymore to the outside to get the rotor centered. Dang, Fox, I want internation standard. I probably will have to get a rotor shim to fix it. Sheesh!

    So you'd rather have to shim the caliper to align things than shimming the rotor? Seems like six of one, half a dozen of another to me.

    It's easier to shim an IS mount. Two bolts to shim instead of six.

    ?????????

    Never had an issue with post mounts before myself, set the caliper on the posts without any effect from the brake line, squeeze the lever, thighten the bolts, ride. Shims suck; try filing the caliper holes.

    Not at all. There's only one (proper) shim needed to shim a rotor, not six.

    Despite all the reasoned arguments, I, too, prefer IS mount to post.

    Syntace's shims are a better option for fine tuning. .2mm vs the hope's 1-2mm.

    be a man and file out the slots on your caliper (I had to to fit 2 piece hope rotors)

    Post mounts are fine, I have yet to work out why so many people moan about them (despite the weekly threads about them )

    Yes, filing is always a sign of a great system

    You still have to remove and install six bolts instead of two.
