    Trying to find some big hydraulic brakes 200mm+. Can anyone help find some?

    Basically what the title says. I'm looking to go all out on some brakes and I work on cars a lot so bleeding brakes is no problem. Anyone know what the best choices are? I've tried a lot of googling and haven't found much. Thanks!

    Shimano XT brakes are available in 203mm. Most manufacturers make a rotor at or around 200mm. I'm not aware of anything bigger, but the 203mm XT should be as much as anybody needs.

    If you want all out, get Hope V4 with 203mm rotors. Next wouls be Shimano Saint.

    Hope TEch Evo V4 brakes with 203mm rotors. However, check to make sure that your fork is rated for rotors that big. Otherwise, fork failure could well be in your future.

    Probably not such a big issue if your fork is rated to 200mm and you want to run a 203 mm rotor.

    However, if it is rated to 180 and you run a 200, then issues *could* occur.
