      I decided I’m going to upgrade my brakes to Shimano XT’s on my 2013 Stumpjumper HT. I currently have Magura MT4s and Magura Mount adaptors. The questions Is, do I need Shimano adaptors or can I currently Use my Magura adaptors. Also Can I continue to use my Magura rotors until I have the funds to get the XT Ice rotors.

      Any Info would help

      You should be fine…The older version of Avid brakes that use CPS hardward won’t work…Just double check the distance of the caliper to rotors edge. A minimum clearance of 1.5mm is good…Also I have noticed with some brakes that if you use a washer between the caliper and adapter, it sometimes brings things in better alignment.

      You are going to love the XTs! I’ve been running them for a while now and try are awesome brakes, they will be a huge upgrade for you! I’m not sure about compatibility with the Magura rotors, but I bet they will work. You may need an adaptor depending on the rotor diameter, but that’s a cheap and easy fix. I say go for it! 😃
