I want to run 180 at the front and 180 at the rear. Hope mono mini's.

Is there a recomended size to run.

It's a new tracer so thought I'd ask before stressing the seatstays. I know 160 at the rear is the way most guys go but I'm willing to accept the weight penalty for the added feel.

If it works why not? But I think 180 is over kill for the back. I would try going 165 in the back and 180 in the front. The front is where most hard braking is done. That is where you need the most power. Running two different sizes is very common. This way you get the best of both worlds. Great braking and a weight savings.

I ran Avid 7" (this is America, dammit!:D ) on my Tracer.

You will need to run the bike in the long wheel base mode, though. Otherwise the rotor will rub on the chain stay under compression.
