    Saint M800 rotor question

    Can you run Saint M800's with 6 bolt rotors?

    If so, do you need shimano specific rotors? Or can you use any rotor?

    If not, which rotors do you recommend?

    Tired of avid and looking for a change.

    I hear the old M800's are pretty nice. And affordable

    Thanks.

    Yes, they will work with 6 bolt rotors. While you don't need to stick with Shimano rotors, they do make 6 bolt versions anyway, so no worries there, but plenty of people do use other rotors with Shimano calipers (and vice versa).

    Personally I like the Ice-tech rotors myself, but have also had Hope rotors and liked them too.
