    Noobie Avid BB7 Rotor size question..

    Ok, I did a big search before posting this simple question...it's late so this might be a dumber question than it seems.

    Ebay has a ton of new Avid BB7 160mm full sets for cheap. However, I would want to run bigger rotors.

    Would these same calipers as they are work with a larger rotor or would I need something (besides the rotor) that comes with the 160mm set to go bigger?

    You will need the new rotors and the new mounting brackets for front and rear. I think there are difference between mounting bracket sizes, so make sure to get the avid mounting brackets.

    Thanks.

    Lesson learned - Might as well just get the package with the rotor size you want, it costs more to get a new rotor and mounting bracket. (I shouldn't be such a penny pencher, the full set is only $140...)
