New to the road bike world so bear with me. I have a Domane 6 disk that has 140mm rotors. I am planning to jump to 160mm discs over the winter. The brakes are Shimano RS805. What adapters do I need to buy?

Looking online for the "right adapter" has me confused. Easier to buy pars for a car! :blush2:

I should have been clearer...its not FOR winter but a winter project. I'm in N.Y. and won't he using it for winter. Fat Bike time:)

I don't NEED To do it; It's a want. I'm use to 208 and 180 rotors. 140 just LOOKS so off to me. Probably the same way lots of guys see discs at all on road bikes.

I also hope to be able to adjust them to a firmer grip...they are squishy to me. I'll do pads and rotors and bleed.

If Hope only made road bike brakes....

Checked them out....correct with flat mount. apparently SRAM is cheaper than Shimano and interchangeable.... BUT most important is they are available!
