Avid BB mechanical diskbrake FRONT only Manitou forks?
OK folks, I screwed up: I bought a pair of Avid BB Mechanical Diskbrakes, front and rear. Except, the front calipers are for Manitou forks only - i.e. POST mount only! And, of course, I noticed this only when I had the bloody things in my hands!
I'm mad as hell. What the heck am I gonna do NOW? I can find plenty of post-to-IS adapters (so if you got a manitou fork, you can install normal IS2000 diskbrake calipers), but not the other way around. I would feel like a tool if I had to replace my front fork just to accomodate the ****ing diskbrake.
Help? I'm deperate here - next move is, caliper flies outta window.
