Hi Guys,

Looking for some advice - I have a 2011 Specialized Epic Marathon with Sram / Avid XO brakes - I am happy with the performance of the front rotor, a 185mm Clean sweep 3 but, its getting a bit thin and will soon need to be replaced.
So as the 185mm rotors are becoming extinct (cant find any at a decent price) should I go down to 180mm or can I safely go up to 200mm? My fork is the standard Specialized Future Shock E100, it already has an adaptor (I know I will need a new one)
Will going down to a 180mm rotor or up to a 200mm rotor make much difference?

Are the centreline rotors any good?

If you're a weight weenie, go 180. If you want a little more power/heat shedding, then go 200. You will notice a difference in power with the 200. Do you need it? I don't.
