Use Avid BB7s with non-Avid rotor?
I want to put a drop handlebar on my MTB.
Since it currently has Magura hydraulic brakes, I'd need to switch to mechanical calipers.
The issue I'm facing right now is this: The bike is a Cannondale, and the hubs have FOUR bolts for the brake rotor. (Yeah, thanks for turning you back on a standard, Cannondale...).
I would think that the mechanical Avid brake calipers would work with the Magura rotor (yeah, it's a special rotor made by Magura just for Cannondale).
Anyone out there running Avid mechanical disc brakes with non-Avid rotors?
Thanks for any insight!
