    centerlock rotors for avid elixr brakes

    First off this is my first year riding so I'm a bit of a tech tard still. Now that's out of the way.

    I just bought a XTR wheelset (centerlock). Currently I have Avid Elixr brakes (6 bolt). 185mm rotor in the rear and 160mm in the front. I think I want to get new rotors rather than an adapter kit but I could be pursuaded otherwise. I'm having a hard time figuring out what rotors (brand, size etc.) would be compatible with my new wheelset. I'd really like to keep the rotor set cost under $120. Anyone have suggestions on what I should go with. Links and offers would be great as well.

    Stick with Avid centerlocks

    I'd give serious thought to using Avid Elixir specific centerlocks as opposed to others. Granted, the link I'm about to post is 5 years old, but why risk compatibility issues?
