    Avid Elixir 5 Rotor Change?

    Hi guys

    I'm planning to upgrade my avid elixir 5 rotors soon, I've seen some that I like the look of. The front rotor at the moment is a 185 Avid HS1 iS, but the range I'm looking at only has 180s. Thats fine for the back, but will a smaller rotor fit and work on my bike? The fork is a Fox F-Series 32 RL 120.

    Thanks in advance

    You can use whatever size you want so long as you have the right adapter. If you are going from 185 to 180, you're going to need a new adapter as well.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Any of the myriad online vendors, or better yet, your LBS.
