    red centered rotors for bb7

    So, I'm building up a vassago - this will be my "dream build" and I saw that the Hope rotors can be had with a Red center section. Is there a rotor that will work with the Avid BB7 that has a red center section or are there any rotors that are just cool or different?

    I've been googling but haven't found anything yet

    Thanks

    I dont know if the hope floating rotors will work with bb7, but magura also makes a "VentiDisk" that has a red a center carrier. It's heavier than the hope floaters. I would look at the hopes first.

    i use hope red center rotors on my formula oro puro brakes. i do not see why there would be a problem with them on your bb7....unless there is something much different with bb7's

    Because some calipers hit the rivets of the Hope two-piece rotors, I had to shave some material off a set of Shimano XT calipers...

    me too. any decent do-it-yourselfer should be able to handle this.

    i had to shave maybe a 1-2mm, much of it was the thick finish on the oro puros

    Well, I went and bought a can of the duplicolor car paint which is actually a clear red. Almost looks anodized. Came put pretty cool. We'll see if it holds up or not
