North Shore builds these extremely beautifully machined Disc Brake Adaptors out of high grade aluminum. We recommend them for anyone looking for extra performance on their brake setup, with a touch of class and color. Use these adaptors to fit Post Mount brakes to IS mounts on frames or forks. Be sure to select the correct end (front or rear) for your setup.
CNC machined from 6061 T6511 aluminum
Made in Canada
Machined surfaces allow for better caliper alignment and more rigid brake set-up
The maching and finish on these adapters is beautiful. I bought two 160 blue adapters (front and rear) and the color is very close to Salsa blue, as compared to my skewers and seatpost collar. The threads are perfectly machined, so all the bolts threaded easily and securely. I have no way to verify the stiffness, but the machined faces will be a more solid connection to the frame and brake than the adapters that came with the brakes. The only problem I had was with the front adapter. It is a bit wider than the one that came with my brakes, so I had to file about one mm from one of the holes on my brake to get a proper clearance from the rotor. The fork is a 26" Fox 32 F100, the wheels are Easton XC One SS, and the brakes are an inexpensive Tektro cable model. One other thing to note is these adapters are shorter than my stock ones. On the front brake, I had to cut a tab off of the brake pad to clear the bottom of the adapter. Not a big deal, but worth noting.
The fit and finish is very high quality. Because of the fine tollerances it is easier to get my calipers aligned. These are also 25% lighter than the Avid/Sram mount they replaced and they come in different colors. The cost is a bit high for a brake mount but when you factor in all of the machining and the annodising process it is worth the money.
