    07 Fox 40

    OK, so I picked up the 07 Fox 40. Now what do I need to get it on my bike? Will the E13 reducers fit my Chris King Head set? I need a 1 1/8 stem, a brake mount for my Hayes HFX Mag, and a 1 1/8 Chris king lower race. Does that cover it.
    Bike is a 2005 Trek Session 77.

    Well thanks for all the help guys...
    Anyway, I was able to pick up the parts from Chris King to convert my 1.5 headset into a Develution headset. Cost was only $2.36 more then buying the E 13 reducer kit. Hopefully this will help someone else when they come accross they sam eissue.
    I am still not sure what brake adapters I need to make the Hayes work on my bike. The mounting system between the Manitou and the Fox is different. Any help would be great.

    you need a fox/hayes style brake adapter. it is specific to the 40 because the 40 only accepts 8" brake rotors...

    Then this should work correct?
    Adapts 51mm International Standard 20mm Thru-axle forks to work with Hayes MC74 calipers.

    the 40 has a mount that spaces the brake out 2"more than 'normal', so for an 8" front rotor, you just need a standard 6" adapter (for 51 mm not post).

    If you had checked the Hayes site you would find this: part # 98-15068, smartpart# stamped on bracket 74-20D. The exact same info came up immediately when I searched for 'fox 40 brake adapter' on this very site.....

    Thanks for the help davep, I actually did do a search here under (fox 40) didn't find anything. I also went to Hayes brakes website and looked under products, hyd. brakes and didnt see anything. Thanks for taking the time to look, I do appreciate the help.

    All you need for the brake adapter is a front IS adapter for 160mm calipers.
