I have a new set of road wheels on the way for my bike. I have everything I need but rotors. I have not been able to find the Spyre TRP rotors anywhere in 160mm.
1) Anyone know where I can order them online? I have found plenty of places that carry them, but they are all out of stock.
2) If not, are there any issues with using a different set/brand of rotors that are the same size? I am planning on already having to re-align calipers when I swap wheels, which is no big deal. Are there any other issues or considerations to take into account? Any brand or product recommendations?
I suggest direct from TRP if you haven't tried that option.
There are better rotors available than those from TRP, and better PM/IS adaptors also (at least adaptors that will accommodate a wider range of frame/hub tolerances). If the riding environment is all flatland it's not such a big deal, most brands of rotor will work. For steep descents with frequent or continuous braking, larger, thicker rotors offer advantages.
I recommend SwissStop green pads over stock pads supplied with the Spyre caliper.

You can use any 160mm rotor with those brakes, but I'm pretty sure these match the ones that came with my HY/RD's and I'd guess the Spyres are the same:
Thanks, those are the ones. Oddly enough, all the vendors I looked at online and all the suggestions from google shopping were out of stock of the 160's the day I made the thread. Thanks for the help, I should be all set shortly!
