Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous There are only two problems with this item - the first is that it's expensive compared to some others, and the second is that you have limited clearance for using bolts with large heads to attach it to the forks.
(1) is because it's a very high quality item - the finish is flawless, the fit perfect, and it's very light. And how cheap do you want to be with the thing that holds your brake caliper on?
(2) is because there is limited clearance around the bolt holes - the manufacturer is assuming cheese head bolts, which I've used. Brake Authority bolts with their captive washers won't fit!

The std Avid adaptors look crude and primitive in comparison and if you have some decent forks and brakes, the NS adaptor is the finishing touch. It weighs nothing, fits perfectly and even works with the standard Avid bolts (none supplied). I went for the Pewter colour which is a kind of medium-grey satin but it would look just as good in a brighter colour such as red or gold.
