    I'm trying to mount some Avid juicy 7's on my fox float. I'm running a 185mm rotor and have no clue what adapter I need to mount it. Anyone?

    Are you going from 160 to 185? Where in Maryland are you?

    Its a brand new build, so it was never mounted before but it is a 185mm rotor. I'm in Hagerstown but ride in Frederick.

    So, are you just looking for the front caliper mount/adapter? If so, all you need to know in addition to the rotor size is the type of mount on your fork. I believe that the Float's are all post mount as in the photo below...

    I thought that I had a couple of 185mm post mounts in my toolbox, but no luck.

    Anyway, you can either order them at your LBS or on line:

    I just might take you up on that. I do quite a bit of riding in Frederick myself.
