- 160 or 185 rotor
I have the opportunity to swap from a 160 disk to a 185 disk for no extra charge.
The bike is a 2008 Marin Rift Zone
The brakes are Avid Juicy 5
The fork is a Fox 32 RLC
The shock is a Fox R
is it worth changing to the bigger disk or not, would I feel a marked difference. Riding is XC with some fairly fast downhill sections going on for a couple of milesPosted 9 years agoJB405Member
185mm are ideal for most of the riding in the UK. I’d agree that unless your really trying to cut the weight of the bike down 160mm aren’t worth having.
The forks you’ve got will easily be able to handle 185mm rotors, 203mm and your gonna have potential problems (08 Fox 32s’ running QR axle)Posted 9 years ago
