    I don't have the fork yet, and I haven't seen one in person. I know that they have post-mounts for the brake. I'm wondering if I should order a special adapter or if the brake just mounts and adjusts right on the posts. I'm using some old Hayes mags. Thanks for your help!

    depending on the post mount spacing, 74mm or 63 or something like that and are the fork posts 8in or 6in, they are prolly 8in and 74mm. you can get a new caliper half if you have a 63mm.

    take a ruler and measure. its probably 74. just measure from the center of each hole.
    and its the post directly for 8inch i believe. like they showed on the 888

    The 66 uses a 74mm post mount for a 6in rotor so that option is still available for people who would rather run a smaller rotor. You will need an adaptor to run an 8in rotor.
