Avid 185 to 203 conversion caliper bolt length.

edited December 2010 in MTB workshop & tech
Hi all,
Im asking this question for a friend.

He is currently converting his 185mm front brake,an Avid Juicy 3 to 203mm.He has the rotor and Avid 203mm post to post adaptor.
The question is does he need different size bolts to mount the caliper to the mount or does he just use the ones of the 185 mount kit,the reason Im asking is that the 185mm bolts look very long.

Has anybody any Idea what size bolts these would be,Im thinking 30mm m6x1 but I am not 100%.

    they are shorter than the 180 ones provided. they are the same as the standard ones.
