    So my dorado already has an 8" post mount adapter that fits hayes but not shimano. What i wanna know is which adapter model # do I need to buy so i can run an 8" shimano xt m756 adapter? the caliper is interntional standard
    Here is a picture of what i want exactly but i'm not sure which adapters those are:

    What??
    I think you will need an Dorado adaptor from Manitou to A-Type 51mm mount. Then, you will need an adpator from Shimano to supersize from 160mm to 203mm.http://bti-usa.com/pictures/SH/SH65636.jpg

    If your Dorado is 03, you can use the Shimano Adaptor , get a 6" Hayes post mount Adaptor from Manitou.


    Either way, you are going to need one adaptor from Manitou, and one from Shimano.
