    Shimano M785 brakes compatible with hayes 160mm adapters & hayes rotors?

    I'm going to swap out my old hayes 9's with some M785 XT disc brakes, the set I'm thinking about getting do not come with rotors or adapters. Will my Hayes Discs and adapters be compatible with the calipers?

    Just curious.

    Your adapters should be good, but I know Shimano's brake pads are picky when it comes to other rotors. Ensure that the braking track of the rotor will be sufficient for the brake pads.

    Just as he said, adapters are adapters and as long as you are sticking with the same size rotor, you will be fine. As for the rotors, they might but a set of Shimano rotors won't cost too much, especially if you go with 160mm.

    Did the rotors work out just fine? Would think that they would but want to cover my bases.
