Ummmmm, ...keep the size you already have, perhaps ??? Not to sound like a jerk, but I'm sure they spec'ed a certain size for a certain reason, no ???anthonysams said:I have a Liquid 25 with Hayes Nine brakes. I am trying to upgrade the rotors to 8" but I was told that the back may not be strong enough for the tension caused by that big of rotor. Any ideas?
Hey, thanks for the wisdom. I have put an 8 on the front and an Avid 7 on the back with an Avid rear adapter. I have taken the bike down some steep terrain and the braking is way better, more control over modulation as well as minimizing lock-up. Thanks.msylvan said:...and the frame is the same. So, using my incredible powers of observation, and the fact that I run an 8" rotor on the back of my 2005 Liquid 25 frame, I'm pretty sure it's OK. That said, ask Trek. They have been great about emailing me back.
