I'm getting together a parts list for another build for this winter/spring and am looking for some opinions on my brake concerns. My original build plan was Hope hubs, Avid BB7 brakes with 180mm HS1 rotors...that's gonna be a little expensive for me, though, and I'd be perfectly happy with something a little less pricey. I'm a big fan of Shimano SLX hubs for their reliability, durability and rebuildability. I've got an SLX hub on the back of my singlespeed as a replacement for my old hub that I destroyed. I'm just not a fan of Centerlock, my 6-bolt adapter has been a pain, and I've read a lot about Centerlock rotors having play in them. I'm thinking I could go with SLX hubs, BB7 calipers and pick up some SLX or XT Icetech rotors to save some money. Talk me into Centerlock. I ended up using some grease on the Centerlock splines and a larger diameter lockring with loctite on it to finally keep my rear rotor from rocking back and forth on the hub during technical braking. Will I have the same issues with, say, SLX hubs and SLX rotors?
