    New question here. Avid Rotors and Hayes brakes?........

    Anyone out there running Avid Polygon or any NON hayes brand rotors with hayes brakes?
    With all this talk about 'shuddering' , 'squealing' isuues with the Wavy and Polygon rotos
    I am curious if anyone has issues with NON avid brand brakes.
    I picked up a set of Polygon rotors for cheap and just noticed that the brake "track"
    from the pads is slightly wider on the hayes rotor.
    I am currently running Hayes Mag HFX brakes with Gen2 calipers.

    One of my riding buddies has been running a 185mm avid polygon and adapter on his hfx mags for the last year. No complaints.

    As long as the rotors are the same overall diameter as the ones you originally had it is not a problem. When I needed to replace my 6" hayes rotors I purchased a set of 6" aztech (I believe) rotors and they work just fine.
