Just in time for Christmas. JUst ordered a set today along with a pair of DT swiss centerlocking adapters. I got an 8" rotor in the front and a 7" out back. So pumped.
why the 7 in the back, those are great brakes, i love mine, i am probably gonna replace the hydros on my p.2 with the bb7s

The front brake provides more stopping power, so there is some rational rationale for a larger front rotor.
was your paper 1/8th of an inch thick?
So rotors are now like "Dubs" for cars? It doesn't matter if the performance is better or not, it's just for looks?
i don't think a dented stay would be too bad.. I've seen some nasty kickstand uninstalls on the stay.. But still I wouldn't do it.
for a bigger rotor you need a different adapter, for a smaller rotor you need a shorter adapter, otherwise the wheel wont fit in, or the caliper won't reach the rotor
I'm pretty sure Teboner has it covered. Adapter looks like it's Avid part no. 00.5315.012.010, rear 51mm IS to 7" rotor.
Tell us how you like 'em after you get it all set up, T.
I just got BB7s for the front of my Trek 4300 and love it so far. Mind you I have not really used it that much, due to the foot of snow we got, but so far so good... Hope you like them too...
Of course it hurts..
Why didn't you just get Avid Juicy 3's? They kick some serious a**.
