    I have a quick question, I was wondering when I get my HFX-9's and the IS adapters do I need to get a special adapter to run the 8 inch rotors, or will the brakes come with them.
    -Thanks

    Hayes brakes don't bring any adapters. They mount standard on Manitou type post mounts but for IS you will need to buy the right adapter seperately. You need to make sure the fork you get is designed for 8" forks. The mount is actually different. IS forks designed for 6" forks (most standard forks) will not fit an 8" rotor. Most thru-axle forks require 8" rotors and will actually not be able to use 6" ones.

    Check with a bike store, I 've got HFX 9s running on Psylos with 8 inch discs and my girlfriend runs the same brakes and forks but 6 inch discs.

    i'm pretty sure you can get adapters to run 8 inch discs on most forks
