only slightly broken
Avid 160 to 185-what do I need?
These avid mechanicals are growing on me. What is requried to
upgrade my front (I am pretty sure the sherman can handle it)
to 185 (or even 203?!?) Big brakes = good
Feeding your addiction
All you need is the larger rotor itself and a new adapter.

...so in theory moving a rear 160 adapter to the front should fit a 180mm rotor. It's commonly used in the opposite direction by brakes that use a 160mm front rotor and 140mm rear rotor ? one single-piece caliper design (no adapters) for a clean and light installation.
