    Will this combo work?

    Avid BB7 Calipers
    Shimano 585 Centerlock hubs with Shimano centerlock (RT-62) rotors

    Any reason that wouldn't work? Will I have to play with spacing on the calipers to get it to line up or will this just drop right in and work like a champ? I guess it comes down to lateral and vertical alignment, right? Any incompatibility issues?

    I know they make adapters so that centerlock hubs will accept 6-bolt rotors, but I'm wondering if the above setup, using centerlock rotors, will work.

    Thanks -

    as long as the rotors you're using matches the fitting for the brake adapters I don't see why not.

    shimano rotors usually have a thinner braking path than other brands, so you might get uneven pad wear....


    a buddy of mine has had luck with the new XT rotors and formula brakes (seems like the new centerlock XTs have a bit wider area than the 6 bolt XTs I run...)
