- hardtails- anyone gone from 180disc to 160 and regret it?
You can buy an adapter and disc for less than £40 together, It’s only 40 quid if you don’t like smaller discs (doubt you will to be honest) then just put your 180’s back on. I personally am upgrading to a 180 rear from a 160. Even though you’re meant to use the front brake 90% of the time.Posted 4 years agosofatesterMember

I’ve always had 160mm discs and never had a problem. Though i can’t see coming down from 180mm making much difference. Just ride what you’ve got and get used to them.
Use one finger, don’t brake as hard and move your weight around to increase traction on the rear wheel*.

Doubt you’d notice any difference, especially on the back. If your back end is breaking away it’s probably more to do with how you’re riding and your weight distribution (not that I am entirely sure what you mean by breaking away, are you dragging your back brake in the bends?)Posted 4 years ago
