i've just bought a set of avaid elixr 5's but they've arrived and they're post mount and not I.S (i'm sure i checked but obviously didn't)

will the mounts from my juicys i have on there now fit them or do i have to buy a special adaptor (post to I.S)?

    Yes. All calipers are fundamentally 160mm post mount. Anything else - different diameter rotor or IS fork mounts - requires an adaptor. If the adaptors you have work with your existing rotors & forks, they will work with your new brakes.

    the calipers are the same mounts so yes.

    North Shore Billet make some tasty adaptors - much better than the std Avid ones.
