    MAX Alfine Disc Rotor Size

    I have searched these forums and Shimano>Alfine, but I cannot find any reference to maximum disc size for the Alfine IGH. It uses the standard Centerlock. I am using a Saint rear hub atm, which I believe has the larger Saint specific Centerlock, so I do not think my current rotor would work. I believe in (single finger) light touch when braking so more powerful is always better (as long as modulation is tolerable). I have heard of people using 140mm XTR and standard 160mm discs. Does anyone have experience or knowledge of larger disc sizes (180/203 etc), I would like to use the largest size possible (have AVID CODE 8" up front).

    Thanks
