    Compatible rotors for X2 and XTR brakes

    I purchased a set of X2's from OrionCycles (they were great to work with, BTW) a few weeks ago. I have a 183/160 setup right now and have a new set of wheels on the way. I am looking to save some cash and did not want to purchase the floating saw style rotors for the new wheels but I had some issues using the Magura front rotor with and the new X2's.

    The spines of the Magura rotors were causing the brakes to pulse since the rotors were a little too big. I thought the Magura Marta SL rotors were 180mm and the Hope's were 183mm. I took this to mean that there would be less of the rotor in contact with the pads. Now I am looking for a new set of rotors that will be compatible with XTR 180 front and the Hope X2's 183mm front brakes. I want to be able to change these wheels between the two bikes without swapping the rotors.

    Any thoughts?
