      I ordered avid bb7 disk brakes(not here yet) for my 2005 gary fisher wahoo. do i need adapters or will the brakes just bolt to the mounting points on the frame?

      If the BB7 are brand new they come with the adapter

      Yeah the brakes are new. I had read something about needing a small adapter for the rear disk brake caliper on trek and fisher bikes when you convert from v brakes to disks even though the frame is disk ready.

      This is what i was reading:

      Ok, cool. That clears things up. I ordered this kit:

      160mm front and rear. I was going to look into upgrading my v brakes, but it seemed silly to do so when i could get these for $45 a set.

      Fruit trail was a lot of fun and pretty challenging for me. I need to build up my skill a bit so i can utilize more of it. If i would have known we had stuff like this around here i would have picked up this hobby years ago. I also want to check out the turkey creek trail once everything drys out.
