    Replacement rotors for my BB7s

    Asked this a year ago, but never pulled the trigger. Wondering if options have changed?

    I'm currently running a 185 Clean sweep on the front with BB7 hardware.
    The disk has never, and I mean NEVER been quiet. I've tried every trick in my book, on the internet, and have included two of the local shops in the experiment, to no avail.

    Finally, the front rotor took too harsh a beating in a huge fall last month, was bent all to hell, and I can no longer use it.

    This means I can now spend a little cash and get a new front disk. I want to stay away from Avid.

    What do you guys suggest for a nice 185mm rotor that will not warble like an effing turkey?

    Thanks all!

    You'll have better luck looking for a 180mm and changing the mounting bracket to suit. 185 is an outdated non-standard.
