    mono mini - 180mm or 160mm front rotor?

    i've pretty much decided on the mono mini for my next purchase and was wondering if i should go 180mm or 160mm up front. i guess for that matter should i go 140mm or 160mm in the rear. they will be going on a giant NRS air with a marz marathon sl.

    i'm 190 with gear/camelback and mainly XC. i like to let it loose on the long downhill fire roads though.

    thx

    Definetly go with 180/160 at your weight, they modulate better than any other brake I've tried

    always go big. 180/160 is the minimum. you might even want to check out the mono m4's , if you are not a weight weenie.
