Assuming your SID is PM which is the prevalent standard nowadays,

PM to PM adaptor for the front (fork), dunno about your frame... IS or PM? If PM, should be just bolt on for a 160 rotor.

I think that you misunderstand what was said.

These are what you'll probably need.

180mm front adapter for a PM fork mounts: http://www.maguradirect-shop.com/mag...0mm-rotor.html

160mm rear adapter for IS frame mounts: http://www.maguradirect-shop.com/mag...ork-mount.html

If the frame has post mounts which it probably doesn't, what 'commo_soulja' was saying is that the brake would attach straight onto the frame post mounts when using a 160mm rotor and an adapter wouldn't be needed.

Example:

What frame is that? I've never seen a rear swing arm that pivots at the back by the mounts like that. Very interesting. Does it not pivot by the BB?

There is also a main pivot at the chainstay/bottom bracket junction. The pivot design you're seeing at the end of the chainstay (and below the axle) is known as a Horst Link and was patented until this year to Specialized but sometimes licensed to other companies for bikes sold in the US.

What's in the pic is a (modified) Horst Link.
