    Stroker V7 vs V8?

    Im ordering up some Hayes Strokers for my Giant Reign. I trail ride and travel around the southwest to ride. Phoenix is home. No real DH. I do ride ski slopes maybe once a year. Are 8' rotors overkill? Or should go for the 8's and have them just in case?

    8 in the front and 6 in the rear.

    If you havent found a place for Strokers check out Spadout.

    I bought 8" rotors for my bike mostly because my 203mm XTR brakes weren't powerful enough. The strokers are miles ahead of XTR brakes in terms of raw power!!! I do all mountain but some of the mountain I ride is very DH like. I think 8" with the Stroker sounds like overkill for what you describe and think 7" on the front would be fine. If you are running 2.5" or bigger tires and doing ski slopes 4 or 5 time a year then 8" would make a lot more sense.

    I have a set of 6" HFX Nine's right now. If I get a set of V8 or V7s, can I use the new rotors up front on my wife's and my Reigns and use the old 6' rotors on the rear end of our bikes?
