I have a '07 Cannondale F4 with the Super fatty DL fork. I'm getting new brakes, probably SLX and I want to run a 180mm rotor and am trying to find out it it will fit (I don't see why not, looks like it has plenty of clearance).

And I need to find out which adapters I need for the IS mounts. I currently have BB5's with 160mm f/r and they use adapters. Will the one on the rear work? If not I will need that as well. I'm looking at the ones on Competitive Cyclist and it looks like I need the F180 and R160 but not sure. Please help!

For the front get the SM-MA-F180P/S adapter.

No need to get a rear adapter, reuse the old one.
* don't use the cup and cone washers that the BB5 uses above and below the caliper.
