    HELP _ QUICKLY Avid Elixir 5 185mm rotors to Alligator 180mm

    Help, i have bent rotors, and am new to all this. I have avid elixir 5 185mm rotors, on IS mounts. To go to alligator 180mm rotors, do i have to buy new mounts, or can i do a washer swap, or file the original mounts? Sorry to be pushy, but there is a big sale on which finishes in 24hours and I can get alligator rotors cheap. I realise that avids are better, but I am only a beginner and have spent too much money already Didn't realise that the second hand bike i brought had bent rotors.

    Any help appreciated.

    consider conversion to 160mm in front. you will need only 2 shorter bolts.
