I bought the same bike last year. I had problems with very loud brake noise. They ended up replacing the rotors and calipers under warranty. Apparently this was a pretty common problem. Maybe your shop was being proactive and replaced the parts and didn't have a 160mm rotor???
Also, I believe on Giant's website it says that the parts specifications are subject to change.
