Yes. You would need to take off the 203mm adaptor and put on a the 160mm adaptor. It's the black thing that mounts the caliper to the frame.

mrk's got it, you'll need an 160mm adapter, apart from that, you'll be set.

I don't think that's possible, although I'm not sure on this one.

I'm pretty sure the angle at which the lever is in comparison to the frame won't allow it to pull right that way. All i know is that it probably wouldnt work.

Sorry i wasn't even thinking of the brake lever. I meant the lever on the calipers, where the cable is attatched.
