    Also, I bought the bike in pieces. I am not familiar with this type of front fork, when I install the front wheel do I tighten the alan bolts first or the axle bolts? I assumed you would tighten the alan bolts first, but when they were tightened up it appeared to leave a 1/8" gap remaining between the fork and the pieces that the alan bolts run through to hold the axle in place?

    Order an avid front brake of the size you desire and it should come with the adapter you will need.

    You talking the rotor? The adapter comes with the disc, or I should order everything together and it the comes with the correct adapter? I keep forgetting rotors come in different sizes.

    Disk takes a 51mm IS mount. Comes with the caliper set, or can be bought separate if you were using post mount and already have the caliper. Which adapter you need depends on the rotor size you choose. And yes, the first link doesn't appear to have the adapter, the second one does. Although the second one doesn't have a rotor with it.
