    Avid caliper/Hayes rotor?

    Is anyone using Avid BB7 calipers with hayes rotors? How's it going? I've seen them on sale on ebay for the BB7/hayes rotor combo, but that's as far as I've seen it. Some people say it works good...

    Thanks in advance!

    I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

    Width of the Hayes rotor is fine for Avid pads. I'm running J7s with my Hayes rotors. They're doing just fine.

    Good job!

    They work well on j5's also. And with Galfer green pads powerful + quiet. I should have put them on sooner. Put up with that horrible noise for too long.

    J5 and J7 are the exact same except for the knob.
