    bb7 rotor upsize

    i was thinking about upsizing the rear rotor to 185 on my handjob. i'm running a 185 in front already and have noted significant improvement in the braking power when i upsized. the question is whether i'd see any improvement with the back, given that these are mechanical brakes and all that cable already makes the rear brake not that useful unlike a hydraulic brake where a bigger size would actually make a difference.

    youll gain power. to lock up the wheel - something you probably don't want. unless you're getting fade, i wouldn't - hydro or mechs
