Thinking about big rotors for my Juicy 5. I weigh in at about 215 w/o gear and run 160's front and rear. Been feeling like I could use more stopping power lately! Can't decide if I should go with 185's or go all the way up to 203. Other than a minor weight factor, any reason NOT to got to 203?
Thanks.

Easier for things to snag them (lower to the ground). And if you have a flexy frame/fork the rotors will deflect off the pads. Bothers most people. I wouldn't use a 203mm rotor with a QR fork.

Thanks. So what would you say about 185 (this is of course a QR fork, a Marzocchi MX Comp/ETA)
