Yeah thats what i read. I doubt the 2010 ones will be different.

You sure you have the right mount for 185?
Dont forget you can fit a caliper staight onto most PM forks and a 160 rotor.

The adapters do come with significantly longer bolts.

Yeah I didnt know you can buy an adaptor for them, my mate has just told me about them! I've found a 185mm post to post adaptor a crc but its made by Avid, are they universal if you're running 185mm disc?

:lol:
Genereally theyre universal but dont forget that avid mounts (I.S) use the concave and convex washers so you may need a couple of them - maybe.

Get them from old v brake pads.
