    It's a disk adaptor and yes, you'll need one.

    Unfortunately, you'll need one specific to the Boxxer, which you'll have to pay for.

    If I remember right, only Manitou uses a post-mount adapter, so you will have no use for that adapter once you get the Boxxer. You could just sell it along with the fork.

    But you will need to get the Boxxer adapter.
