I’ve just invested in some Avid Elixir-R Brakes for my Spec Hardrock, rears all fitted no probs on a 160mm disc, but the fronts have a 185mm disc, which I’ve fitted to the wheel etc.
My question is, do 185mm discs just have a single “raiser block” (not sure of the proper name) for the caliper to sit at the correct height? I received one with no holes in the side to attach to my forks, but it seems to be the correct height if I “add it on” to my existing block from my 160mm setup.
They seem to work ok so far, but it looks a bit “D.I.Y” having a block on a block, lol. I don’t want them to give way or something and chuck me over the bars.
Can anyone shed any light? I can chuck a picture up when I get home if needed (my powers of explanation aren’t the best).
