First one is a post to post mount adapter whereas the second is IS to IS. What mount are your brakes? You never know you might need an IS to Post mount one like this -

pretty sure your callipers are post mount so the second adapter you list is no good.

if your forks are post mount, then you will need longer bolts.

Thanks for the replies,

Should have given a bit more info, my fault.

Ok, have got proper frame and fork mounts for the disc brakes.
Running Formula oro k18 hydraulic set up.

Currently running a 160mm front disc and just need the adaptor just to run the 180mm disc.
:D

Looks like you have two adapters on there though? An IS one to shift the caliper out and then an IS to post mount bolted on that.

Am I seeing that right?

Got this> http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/310401610770? ... 1740wt_934

The cheap one looked flimsy, got this much stronger looking one.
That's just how it goes.

That's what it looks like to me too (although it is early and phone pics only).
The link provided above is for IS to IS but the caliper is post mount?
