BB7s from Jenson

Just an FYI because I have been point a lot of people to these the past week or so.

Jenson's website states that post mount adapters are not included with 185s or 205s when in reality they are. Both of my boxes have F&R IS mounts and front post adapters.

Just letting people know that they don't need to spend the extra 10 bucks.

At least for the '09s they seem to say that

* Each kit includes 74mm caliper, 6-bolt rotor, mounting hardware, and adapters for front and rear 51mm IS mounts
And each size is listed as front or rear.


The price on the 203mms spiked, but the 185s and 160s are still cheeep.

IIRC The oh 9s are the first year of the new design that is interchangeable front to rear. Mine are like that at its pretty cool.

The part I am referring to is
The only fit for which an additional adapter is required is for forks with 74mm post mounts, when paired with the 185mm or 203mm system.
Just to clarify my 185s came with 74mm post mount adapter in addition to the 51mm IS mounts.
