Pads probably haven't bedded yet. Take the pads out, sand in a figure-eight pattern, put them back in, do a couple dozen break-in stops.
They should be bedded in by now.shiggy said:They should be bedded in by now.
There can be a substantial difference in power between 180 and 160mm rotors.

That was my thought. Are the Avids with 185mm rotors on par with Hopes (180mm rotors)? Or would I be throwing $$ away?
Thanks. I guess I will take the chance and get the bigger rotors.:eekster:shiggy said:I have never ridden Hopes.
I have many, many miles on Avid mechs with 185 rotors and there is more than a noticeable difference compared to the smaller rotors, especially on long descents.
Also EBC Gold pads are more powerful and last MUCH longer than the stock Avids.
