Compatibility: Calipers are made to fit most any model of bike and rotor size given the right bracket/adapter. Calipers as they are, are Post Mount intended for use with 160mm rotors. To be anything else, different brackets need to be used. There is not a master list of what brand, model, and model year any bike/fork has for brake caliper mounts, so please refrain from sending an email stating your model of bike and asking if it's compatible. The person in possession of the bike is in the best position to determine compatibility.
Refer to image 8 for the flow chart as to what you will need. Buyer is responsible for purchasing brackets/adapters on their onw. All brackets/adapters need to be made by Shimano in order to be compatible.
The best way to estimate the length of hydraulic line required is to measure your old brakes, or use a long piece of shift/brake housing, run it along the route it takes on the frame, and measuring how much is required.
We do not alter hydraulic line lengths or mix/match brakes if you need a kit of a different length combination. They are sold as they are.
