    New Avid BB7 Rotor

    I have a set of Avid BB7's with 185mm rotors, and I need to replace them

    Can I use 180mm rotors as a replacement, or do I have to use 185mm as replacements?

    You can use a 180mm rotor but you will need a new mount for the size different. I have in the past taken a rear 160mm rotor adapter and flipped it for front use on a 180mm rotor. Works just fine and save some coin.

    I recommend the Shimano XT Ice Tech rotors.
