    What rotors to use with bb7?

    What rotors are you guys using with your bb7? I only have disk on front, 160mm. What are the thoughts on Avid HS1.

    Thanks.

    Any rotor you have the right size mount adaptor for should work. I've used the Clean Sweep rotors with mine, as well as Ashima Airotors.

    I have used BB7 SL's with Ashima Ai2 rotors and semi-metallic pads for cyclocross which I thought offered pretty good braking but on longer descents or in the wet the pads produced a squeal.

    I used Gatorbrake rotors with good success with BB5's and BB7's, and now I'm still using them with Formula brakes.
