    Shimano XT m775 brakes with Avid G3 Rotors?

    May seem like a basic question, but my Elixirs were making some noises and I like shimano brakes better anyway but was curious if anyone has used the G3 clean sweep rotors with shimano calipers. Or should I just pick up some XT rotors?

    I haven't done it, but it should work fine.

    You can just mount the XT's using your avid adapters. Don't use the CPS washers with Shimano Brakes though.

    As long as you space/shim the calipers correctly, you should be fine. I am running 775s w/ Ashima AiRotors and no probs.
    I turn a wrench @ Simplicity Cycles

    I used them with g2 rotors with no problems but if you use the Avid adapters watch for clearance issues. Nothing a dremel or file won't take care of.
