I bought an Avid Juicy 5 203mm front brake kit in Hungary. Anyway, as I lately discovered, apparently, not only does the wheelset have to be strong to take the braking forces but the fork too. I have an RST fork. If it's gonna snap or become useless because of the 8" rotor then I'd rather pay those 25 euros for a 6" Avid Polygonal rotor. Every euro counts here, mind you, but if I have to spend 25 euros for a smaller rotor to save my fork from becoming useless and having to pay hundreds of euros then I will.
So: will my RST fork take the forces of an 8" rotor? Should I just order a 6" rotor along with the wheelset and wait until I get a serious fork before putting the 8" rotor on? Oh and what happens if I put a 2.2" tire on a Sun Double Track rim?
Thanks a lot for your patience,
