Disc brakes on new fork
#1
Picked up a Surly Krampus fork for a 29er that I am working on.  Supposed to be compatible with disc brakes.

Can someone explain how to transfer this over to the new fork.  See photos.

you need a standard to post mount adapter. Google tektro disc adapter. it is nice to know what size rotors, bolt hole center to center. You have a post mount now and are going to adapt it to the new fork with a standard mount. You may also need shims depending on how well or not it sets up, but you will know at that point start without them first.
