Old fork was RS Dart 3 with post mounts. Brakes are Hayes Stroker Ryde 160mm. I had no problem aligning the calipers with the rotors in the past. Now I have a RS Pike (20mm thru axle) with IS mounts, so I ordered

and now the caliper will not line up with the rotor. The outside pad has plenty of clearance, but the inside pad cannot be made to fit. I have tried spacers inbetween the IS mount & the adapter but then the adapter touches the rotor. Have I ordered the wrong adapter? do I need to include pictures?

soo, I tried with some different spacers and I was able to get the caliper & rotor lined up... BUT is it okay to use spacers inbetween the fork mounting location and the adapter??

QR IS adapter

I had a PIKE and the Hayes Stroker Trail. I ordered the 180mm adapter that is supposed to work with a thru axle and ran into the same problem. I put the IS front adapter back on and it lined up perfectly. Use the standard QR adapter and it should work just fine.
