Hi, do you have a post to post mount for a rear code brake to suit a 203mm size rotor? My bike currently has a 185mm rotor but I want to run a 203mm. The current brake bolts direct onto the frame with a spacer. I couldn't find anything on your site.

Answer: 
You could likely use Ice-Tech rotors with these brakes but as the calipers are not compatible with Vented Pads, the heat dissipation benefit is rendered practically null.

The brakes below will perform optimally with Ice-Tech rotors.

Answers

Answer: 
It depends on the exact combination you want to use, but generally speaking you should always match the brand of your caliper to the same brand of rotor (as they will have been designed to the same template) for the best braking performance. There are aftermarket brands who produce generic rotors that should work with the majority of systems though. Drop us an email with the brake system and rotors you want to use and we can double check compatibility for you.

Answer: 
Yes, you should be fine to use these together. If fitting a new brake with an existing rotor be sure to clean the rotor fully prior to installation. For best performance you should consider a new rotor with a new brake.

Answers

Answer: 
Inevitably disc brakes will squeak to a certain degree when they are wet; however to lower this sound you could run Organic pads but they are not every efficient when wet.

Semi-Metallic although can be quite loud; definitely provide better stopping power when they get soaked.

Be sure to always 'bed' new pads in correctly to ensure the rotor is coated evenly; this will also lower the intensity of rotor scream.
