Fine part - but not as advertized 30 April 2014
By M. Gentilcore - Published on Amazon.com

The rotor was advertised as featuring mounting hardware, including bolts and lock ring. It arrived as the rotor only. I got an "unfortunately" letter from Amazon when I said it was furnished incomplete. I made a visit to the local hardware store with my wheel and part. I bought the last 12 metric screws in the store that were proper length.

Amazon reimbursed me slightly more than my costs for the screws. So, though I got a bargain in the end - - I prefer to get what is advertised and avoid unnecessary harassment.

After that hassle, part installed without issue (did use some lock-tight on the threads) and worked fine. 160 mm is pretty standard dimension.

More reliable than Avid 160mm rotors! 4 Sep 2013
By Daniel Reis - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this product specifically because my "Motobecane Fantom Cross Outlaw" from bikesdirect.com shipped with a defective Avid rotor for the back tire. It was flying around in the box, most likely, because Avid found it hilarious to use the crappiest plastic ever for the bag they put it in. That rotor (AVID BB5 BB7 Disc Brake Rotor G2 160mm 1pcs) simply wasn't true out of the box, and even after ten full re-calibrations, I was still hearing the signature "your rotor is freaking bent" sound at a particular spot in the wheel's revolution. It sounds like ".....tssshink.....tssshink...", and I was stuck in my calibration. With the break lines any further away, the brake lever must touch the handlebars to stop the bike, but with the break lines as close as they needed to be to prevent *that*, in comes the sound again. In the end I just dealt with half-functioning back brakes for a while. What a nightmare.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge newbie with bike repair. Even this Shimano rotor took two calibrations to get it absolutely perfect - but that's more the fault of Avid's BB5 break system than anything else, imo. I've learned a lot in two months just by reading like a maniac, and nobody seems to actually like the BB5 system very much.

Here's another handy guide for you folks (this was the process I ran through ten times, going slightly more insane each time, until I finally decided to buy a new rotor):


Anyways, this replacement rotor doesn't look quite as sharp and probably weighs twice as much, but it certainly stops well and is actually straight (*gasp*) for an extremely affordable price! 5-stars from me.

My only question: what are the extra clips for (two holes each, it appears that they could bridge two mount points on the rotor) that seem to be the same size as the bolts? Are they meant to be applied to the outside, just below the bolt, or something? It wasn't discussed at all in the product manual. I'm a little worried I did something wrong.

Great for the Price 19 May 2013

I was concerned about the low price compared to other disc brakes, but I trust the Shimano name, so I gave it a chance. I was not disappointed. Solid disc with mounting screws. I have two and I am happy with both.

Inexpensive and awesome brake rotor 17 May 2013
By Daniel J. Boehning - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I needed a replacement rotors for my mountain bike. Solid metal that won't bend easily. I use these with the Hayes 9 system and have no issues whatsoever. I couldn't be happier. Solid product.

Excellent 17 April 2014

Shimano is the part for your bike. Changed the ones which came with my Fuji bike which are very low end and rusted during the first week.
