    Disc Brake help

    So I have been a die hard user of rim brakes who is getting to the point of wanting to switch. The question I have is about rear rotor diameter. I know that Juicy ultimate has a 140 rear rotor option...however that is not present in any of the lower lines (carbon or 7). I assume you can't just buy a 140mm rotor and use it... so what is the proceedure with this?

    you can. The caliper will come with the appropriate mounting hardware. Why the 140 rotor though? Are you a diehard weight weenie?

    I am a XC racer who has been a die hard rim brake user... of course I am a weight weenie. I also like the aesthetic of the smaller rear rotor.

    yeah, when you're rolling down the street, people can tell its a nice bike if they have shiny things at the center of the wheels.
