    Avid MTB Bb7 8inch 203mm or 200mm

    Greeting fellow bikers:
    I reciently ordered a bb7 mtb brake set for my mountain bike that I plane to tour with. I ordered 203mm for the front and received a 200mm instead. The production date on the box states 2013 WK 13... I'm wondering if the 200mm disc is replacing the 203mm disk or is there any real differance at all. This is a tough subject to search on the web as there is no real subject on it. You either see comments on one or the other but no real disscussion on why Avid has a 200mm and a 203mm rotor.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks:

    Patrick.

    All current Avid brakes use 180 and 200mm rotors rather than 185 and 203mm (plus the usual 140 and 160). No real performance difference.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
