    Post Mount Disc Brakee vs Flat Mount

    The bike pictured requires Post Mount disc brakes right? You cannot adapt Flat Mount brakes to fit? Pretty sure I ordered the wrong thing.

    I'm not aware of an adapter that will let you install flat-mount brake calipers on that bike.

    Well....two different things:

    A) The rear caliper, the frame is I.S. mounting...so you can do flat OR post mount brakes, so long as you have the correct adapter to replace (or use) what is pictures. So you can use anything. I.S. predates the others.


    B) The front fork is post mounting. It basically requires post-mount brakes IIRC.

    I could be wrong but I don't see anything that allows going from IS to flat.

    IS mount to Post:

    There's lots of adapter widgets for this kind of purpose to sort through. The only one that I believe doesn't exist is flat-caliper to post-mount.
