    Noob Disc question

    My cx bike has disc brakes (avid bb7) Just got a 2nd set of wheels, so naturally need a second set of rotors. The avid rotors are a bit more expensive than some other options. Are other brands of rotors generally cross compatible with other brakes (assuming the right bolt pattern and diameter.)

    As a second question: Is there really any difference in rotors?

    Thanks in advance

    The little handles on the Avid brake pads will hit two piece rotors but any one piece rotor should work.
