I have spesh stumpy 2010 with a 203mm rotor upfront and 185mm on the rear, I'm struggling too find 185mm rotors! The avid rotors squeal and vibrate like a censored ! Want to try rotors before I splash out on a new brake set!

Any recommendations much appreciated!

    Get a different adaptor (180) and run 180 mm rotors instead.

    Can't find a 180mm adapter! Looks like I'm going to have to spend a bit more cash!

    I've got a decent pair of 185mm rotors going - looking for £10 posted each, or £17.50 the pair. Pm me if you're interested, and I'll sort out pics, etc.

    It's not the avid discs causing the noise, it's the avid callipers floating around on that mentally stupid CPS washer mounting system, not sure if you could run 180mm disc and just bin the washers......
