    avid switch?

    I currently have a 160mm avid front disc brake system and am adding a matching rear. here's my dilemna, i would like a larger rotor in front , i was wondering if i could order a larger rear system and simply switch the front to back and put the larger system on the front.

    Not quite. Order the larger front system and a 160 mm rear mounting bracket (the black part of the brake. Put the new mount on your current brake and mount it on the back.
