    Avid BB7 with Hayes rotors

    I'm looking to buy a set of Avid BB7 calipers, and was wondering if they would work with my Hayes rotors, or if I would be better off with avid rotors. Also, I can get BB7 calipers that are two years old for real cheap on ebay. Would there be any advantage to newer calipers? thanks

    They will work fine with Hayes rotors. I am running my Juicy 7s with Hayes rotors.

    The BB7 really didn't change much over the years.

    Just make sure the calipers are ~2 years old, not ~4+... the original Avid calipers require a 165mm rotor.

    Yes, pre-2003 Avid mechanicals used 165mm rotors
