    Looks like Shimano is bringing back the 180mm rotor. 6-bolt and centerlock rotors as well as the appropriate adapters will be available for 2007. No need to run other companies adapters, unless you already have them. In that case they should work fine.

    They have been available for the past year, I already used a 180mm LX/Hone centerlock for 6 months on my XTs, before switching hubs 5 months ago...

    They are available in centerlock at the LX/Hone level and in 6 bolt at the XT level.

    There are also the corresponding adapters available:
    SM-MA-F180P/S: front PM to IS
    SM-MA-F180P/P: front PM to PM
    SM-MA-R180P/S: rear PM to IS

    Hayes does have a " 7" version" (I am not sure if it is 180mm or 185mm though) The rotor is called the V7 and the adapters are available too.
