    Rotors that suit Avid Elixir 5 ?

    Im replacing a bent avid 160mm rotor on the front. This may be a stupid question... but can i use any brand of 6 bolt 160mm rotor with Avid Elixir 5 hydraulic brakes...? Or are some brands for some reason not compatible?

    cheers

    yeah, you can use any brand 6-bolt rotor. But the Avid HS1's are pretty inexpensive (cheaper than the G2 & G3 Cleansweep rotors)....

    I just got some Magura rotors off Chainlove for $5 each. They're great.

    The pad sweep area of the G3 is smaller than the G2 due to the smaller brake pad of the Elixer vs the Juicy/BB7's.
