    Saint M815 rear hub with 203mm CL rotor and Avid BB7's?

    Can I run a M-815 150mm x 12mm rear hub and Ice Tec centerlock rotor with a set of 2011 203mm BB7's? Yes, I could get the Shimano 6 bolt rotor adapter and run the regular Avid rotor, but like the Ice Tec rotor idea.

    Does anyone have any input on the Saint Ice Tec Rt81 203mm Disc Rotor as far as actually being superior in dissipating heat?

    You could run the Shimano rotor, as long as its pretty much the same thickness and the braking zone is equal or larger to the BB7 pads, which covers all the braking zone on the 203mm G2 rotor... I might get you a measurement of the braking zone on the G2 to help you compare.

    I use an Alfine centrelock hub and a standard XT 203mm (non ICE Tec) with BB7s and they work well. I assume the Ice Tecs have the same dimensions,
