    ... and if we just ... New to forum and new to bikes

    hello all i have just joined im from the UK i have done bmx before but just starting some trails!

    at the moment i have hydro disc brakes made by hayes so1e front one is seized solid and rear is just shot! so im looking into mechanical brakes
    so my question is as follows

    on the bike at the moment is 160mm disks and is mount calipers (i think its is)


    but the disc kit im looking at are still 160mm but the calipers are goi8ng to need spacers/adapters to fit my bike. will these spacer/adapters makew the caliper sit to far from the disc?

    proberly to most dumb question ever considering its all sold as a kit! but i just would like to check before wasting my money on it!!

    thanks in advance

    What kind of forks are those?
    I honestly don't have an answer I never seen disk brakes mounted like that. Since I have been using disk from about 2004 I have seen adaptors used to attach the callipers to the frame/forks.
    Can you take it to a shop to make sure new stuff will fit it?

    Most if not all disc brake calipers and forks made these days are post mount, your fork and disc brake caliper have IS (International Standard) mounts.

    If you want to attach a post mount disc brake caliper onto your fork you'll need the following adapter for a 160mm rotor.
