Ive recently bought some avid juicy 3 brakes for my trek to replace the standard cable pull disc brake. My question is that im keeping the same size discs (160mm) so will the new brakes fit straight on the existing mounts or will I need new ones as the disc size is remaining the same?

    Same mounts but you will need the Avid CPS washers (same cones as V-brake pads use as it happens) and correct length bolts (longer to allow for the washers!)

    They will fit as long as they mount the same way - post or IS.

    Silly question where would I get the bolts from? Halfords or is it something my lbs woukd have to hand as they will be fitting and bleeding them.
