    If you need to fit post-mount calipers onto a flat-mount frameset, these little adapters are the way to go. The end result might not look as clean as using a flat-mount caliper, but I'm more than happy to make that compromise if it lets me save the few hundred dollars a new brake system would cost.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    So I just got a new gravel bike and the ENVE Gravel road fork that came on the frame is the new flat mount standard. The SRAM RED Hydraulic disc brake set that I have is a post mount. I really did not want to buy a new caliper for this new standard, admittedly it would have a cleaner look if I used a flat mount caliper, but I really did not want to shell out extra cash. In comes the Shimano flat mount disc brake adapter to the rescue. I picked up the 160mm "Front Post to Flat" adapter and voila! Everything was right in the world again.

    The description indicates that this adapter allows for installing a flat-mount caliper on a post-mount frame. Is this true? If so, which ones would I need for front and rear? "Post to flat" to me would mean you have post calipers you need to install on a flat frame, so I was looking for an item called "flat to post"--but do I have this backwards?

    Thanks in advance.
