    Brake Rotors

    Is there really any difference in brake rotors (Avid vs Shimano, etc). Does it matter if I use Shimano rotors on an Avid setup?

    Thanks

    As long as the size of the rotor is correct, you should be fine. There might be more noise with various rotor designs over others, but it should still work.

    Some Shimano rotors are for use with resin/organic pads only.

    avid or hayes

    can avid rotors be used with hayes brakes and vise versa? Any compatibility issues? Which rotors are better?
