    Hayes brakes w Shimano rotors?

    I have a friend who needs a new wheelset, and I have one to sell him. He is running Hayes MX-1 brakes (I think) and my rotors are shimano xt 6-bolt. Size is 160, like the rotors he is using now. He wants to have two wheelsets so he can change road-mtn with ease. Will Shimano and Hayes play nicely together?

    Eh, the Shimano rotors have a narrower braking path than the Hayes pads. The pads will sweep over the "arms" of the rotors. This will potentially lead to uneven pad wear among other problems.
