    Inbred 29er brake question

    I am planning an Inbred 29er build (21" if it matters) and am trying to decide which brakes I should go with. I had heard there might be issues with BB7s on smaller frames but not the larger ones. I was wondering is it possible to use a 185mm or even 203mm Avid BB7 brakes on the rear of an Inbred? I am 230# and want to make sure I have enough stopping power.

    I found the answer, looks like the bigger rotor is actually the solution to this problem.

    Correct.
    It only affects the swapout and singlespeed Inbreds. The vertical dropout has no issues, lots of room.
