    SLX M675 with generic rotors?

    Hi, I'm about to buy couple new bikes for the kids (11) and the bikes come with TEKTRO NOVELA Mechanical Disc Brakes with I guess some generic rotors. I plan on upgrading the brakes to the new SLX and wondering on your thoughts on reusing these generic rotors. I know the stopping might not be a s good as when using good rotors but will be a whole lot better then using those mechanical brakes.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Only thing with brakes and rotors being compatible, right mount adapters. I think there's a couple weird cases due to pad size but just make sure pad is not surpassing the outside of the rotor (tektros usually have wavy outer edge so not past outer most point of the waves)

    good point, yes proper positioning of the brakes in relation to the rotors is important. Have not purchased the bikes yet, will still look around for options. Hard to find good bike for a 11 year old.

    Have you looked at the Camber Grom by Specialized?
