Mount

The original system was Post mount, and later came Flat mount and I.S. (international Standard). Flat and I.S. have the threads in the brake unit, whereas Post depended on a threaded hole in the frame. The advantage of having the threads in the unit is that if they become stripped, it doesn't ruin the frame.

If the mount type is not specified it is probably post mount.
