    Discs & Mounts

    Hey all

    I'm in the process of getting parts for my new SS XC rig (Soma 4one5 with On-One Superlight Carbon fork) and without a whole lot of thought went and ordered some 2007 avid juicy 3's from overseas. As I was looking again at the On-One site to find more details about the forks, I noticed that it states that it has disc mount, standard not post style.

    Now my biggest problem is that all this means nothing to me. What I know about disc brakes could be written as a tattoo on a bee's d!ck so I was wondering if anyone could help in explaining what the differences are, and if there is a problem with combining those two products.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    The Hoff

    There's two most common types of brake mounts, post mount, and standard (51mm IS) mount. Avid brakes come with an adapter so that they can be used on both type of mounts. You don't have a problem at all.

    and also, a post mount is also referred to as the 74mm mount. Some Manitous and extreme high end forks have special adaptors
