    Anyone knows the maximum rotor size for a Rock Shox SID?

    My friend has a older SID (circa '02-03) and wants to put a 203mm Avid BBY on it. Will this be a problem? Does anyone know the maximum recommended rotor size on the SID?

    I would not put a 203mm rotor on it. It is noodly enough to start with. And I highly doubt that the dropouts and tabs were designed with that in mind. I know that some bigger riders had problems with even 160mm rotors.

    I think it accepts up to 180-185 mm.

    That's interesting. Some other thoughts come to mind. What kind of bike is this SID on that one would need or consider an 8" rotor? Or perhaps the brakes are so bad that only an 8" rotor will stop it?
