So my bike comes with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with centerlock rotors. I'm looking to upgrade my wheelset and the standard is the 6 bolt setup. So I'm looking to have to replace my rotors as well. I've heard alot of talk about using the same brand rotors and brakes together. Is his the case with the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes? Should I only use a Shimano rotor? Problem is Shimano 6-bolt rotors are harder to find as the whole centerlock technology is their baby, and they're usually a bit more expensive since you have to special order them. I'm just curious if I could use any standard 6-bolt rotor of the correct size with these brakes. I'm not looking to upgrade my entire brake setup as I've been happy with them so far and am spending the money on other parts first. Thanks for the help.
