    well as you can probably tell, i'm trying to work with a Grimeca sys.12 and a 6" postmount on an 07 888SL. from everything i have tried, nothing will work... i can tell that if there is a specific adapter out there that sets the caliper mounts off to the left everything will work fine...
    is there some kind of mount? i have tried looking up bassano-grimeca online but everything concerning them seems to be down...

    help please!
    thanks in advance

    not with a 6" rotor...but you can with an 8" rotor. I have a Xt-755 IS caliper on an 08 Fox 36Float which is a post mount fork ( direct mount to a 6" rotor).

    The bummer is the Shimano adaptor I needed ( which you will probably need to) is expensive...like about 50 bucks. Then figure another 20+ for a rotor.

    i have an 8" rotor on there already...

    do you know the model or part # of that shimano adapter?
    is it just a 6" postmount adapter for the xt-755?

    The number on my adapter is sm-ma-f203s/p , That is for an xt-755 with 8 inch rotor to go on a post mount 07 888
