    Will Hayes 180mm Bracket work with Avid Calipers?

    I have a set of Juicy 7's and a Hayes V7 rotor I want to mount on my fork. But Avid only makes a 185mm adapter while the V7 is 180mm. Hayes does make a 180mm adapter but will it work with the Avid calipers since both are IS?

    The V7 is actually 183mm.

    It should work with the Avid, don't forget to use those CPS washers.

    I used a J7 with Hayes 203mm rotor and adapter.

    Actually the V7 are listed in the QBP catalog at 178mm (7 inches to be exact). Do you mean the Avid 185mm adapter will work with the 180mm rotor or the Hayes 180mm adapter will work with the Avid calipers?

    It's 183mm. It's printed on the rotor. BTI lists it as 180 (7.1 inches). But I am nearly certain it is 183mm... or I'm thinking of a Hope.

    The Hayes 183mm adapter will work with the Avid caliper for Hayes 183mm rotor.

    A 185mm adapter will leave pad that is not in contact with the rotor.
