I have a set of old shimano 495 mech disc calipers and I am going to run my beater with disc front v rear.

The only problem is I can not tell which is front and which is rear. Does it matter?

if the are IS the "rear" one has longer "arms" to the holes where they are mounted. It matters because front and rear IS are not the same... it will be quite obvious if you mount them the wrong way in regard to the rotor size you have.
