Guys I hate making a new thread for a simple question, I have a 203mm front/185mm rear, I want to switch both to 160mm, I am all XC/no downhill, is this as simple as removing the adapter and swapping rotors?
Unless your fork only accepts a 203 rotor (like my Totem), then all you need to do is mount your calipers to your 74mm posts or use a adapter for a 51 or 54mm posts/tabs on your fork. You will only need the 51 or 54mm adapter to attach your brake caliper to your rear frame tabs. You may want to run 170 up front and 160 in the rear though, as you will get better braking power with the larger rotor up front. Anyways, good luck man. 😃
