Hi all, hope you can help me out here...so, I have fox 36 180 Float fork, with post mount made to mount the caliper directly to the fork, no adapter. My previous brakes were Juicy 7's with 203 mm rotors. Upgraded to 2012 Elixir 9's, with 200mm rotor. since the rotor is smaller, and I can't move the the caliper closer with an adapter, not as much of the pad contacts the rotor as the old brakes (about 1.5 mm I would assume). Is this ok, ie., will I get less performance out of them, or should I put the old 203 mm rotor back on?
