Strength:

Does what it says on the tin (allows you to fit rear disks),

Weakness:

a bit dificult to set up straight with lots of washers and packers

does the job although a welded mount would be nice.

Strength:

its the only way to get discs on 99-00 FSRs besides the dangerous aftermarket stuff.

Weakness:

i used all the wavy washers but the rotor still scraches the suspension joint bolt. it'll be nice if they have post mount version, so i dont have to use double adaptors

get it if you have i bike that needs it, don't if you don't(kinda pointless, why get something you dont need)

Strength:

Easy to Fit, and Fits some other Specialized Bikes not Mentioned. Fits my 00' P.3 Nicely although I had to Use a Front IS Adapter Instead of a Rear as The Caliper wasnt inline with the 160mm Rotor

Buy This Adapter, Works GREAT!

I took from one SPECIALIZED ENDURO and put in one KHS TANDEM ALITE with one AVIB bb7 mechanic.Works perfect and great visual!

Weakness:

nothing to declare.

I change the V-Brakes for disks in one frame without adapter for rear disk and the braking performance becames better a lot. Thanks for the SPECILIZED engineers!!!
I think people ho have very nice frames without disk brake adapter and want to feel disk brakes should buy it.

Strength:

Works pretty well, no flex to speak of

Weakness:

With my Shimano XT 755 calipers I couldn't use either the 160mm or 203mm rotors. Just so happened that a Grimeca System 8 180mm rotor fit perfectly though!

Allowed me to use disk brakes on the rear of my otherwise diskless bike. Works as advertised.
