Avid CPS question

I have BB7s. I'm in the process of swapping out the stock manitou axel for a rockshox Reba race. The problem is that i need a mounting racket but not sure if it's just as simple as getting a 160mm IS front bracket. The BB7s mounted directly on to the fork. Seems like I need a bracket with the Reba. I have 160mm rotors. No lbs has them in stock so I have to do an online order. I found an avid cps that says it works with 160 front or 140 rear. It's that simple right? I'm not going to have to get a different kind of bracket because the holes don't line up, right? As long as rotor size is correct, I should be good to go. Thanks.

Thanks. Why do some say 0mm IS or 20mm IS? I'm looking at one that is for 160 front/140 rear and 0mm IS.

Avid have renamed their adapters and called them them 0mm, 20mm and 40mm.

20mm IS means that it's a IS to PM adapter for a 180mm rotor.

0mm = 160mm
20mm = 180mm
40mm = 200mm

The 160mm Front/140mm Rear adapter is the old name and it is exactly the same as the new front 0mm IS adapter.

* You don't need a Avid branded adapter specifically, you could use any brand adapter that's the right size.

That's actually downright stupid on avid's part.

Easier to go by 160 instead of 0mm

Thanks Cobba. I think you answered this twice for me. But I wanted to place the order today. So I could get it ASAP. That last number was throwing me off again. It sounded simple until that 0mm, 20mm came into play. Wasn't sure if there was something else I had to measure.

Ps, it is dumb to change things around. Makes ordering things confusing.
