    Advice on brake rotor size

    Hello to all,I have a 2009 caffeine 2 29er. I would like to upgrade the size of the brake rotors. Will the 185 rotor fit on the rear? The front will handle the 203,correct? Also the bike came with Avid Juicy 3 brakes. Any suggestions for upgrades? I was thinking about the Elixer R. Thanks.

    Not sure what Lefty is on the Caffine, but I have a PBR 140 lefty and I run a 203mm rotor with no issues (with Magure Storm SL rotors on Mavic Crossmax ST wheels)

    I have an 09 Caffeine 4 frame with a 185 rear, it's an XL, not sure if that makes a difference. It's a little tricky to get the wheel in without hitting the rotor against the chainstay, but it fits fine once it's in there, plenty of clearance. A 203 might even fit, no need for it but it may fit.

    It's a DLR Speed with 80mm travel.
