Caliper adapter Deore/Rockshox

Hi,

Just joined the forum! I've just got round to fitting a new pair of Rockshox Recon 27.5 to my existing bike. Unlike my ancient Pace forks that they replace they have a post type fixing instead of the I.S type. I'm using Deore BR-M535 calipers that I believe are a flat mount type that came bolted to an I.S adapter out the box. The discs are 160mm diameter. The problem I'm having is to what adapter I need to get for the different fixing orientation of the Rockshox forks......Any advice greatly appreciated!!!! (sorry I can't submit a photo as need to have made 10 posts before this is allowed!)

Cheers,

Pete

No adapter is needed. Take off the IS adapter and bolt the caliper directly onto the post mounts on the fork. 160mm is the standard for MTB forks, so you don't need an adapter unless you go with a larger rotor.
