Don't worry though, we have a lot more Mountain Brake Small Parts in stock than that.
Shimano XT SM-RT79 Centerlock Disc Brake Rotor $0.00
The Saint 810 group has simplified the mysteries and incompatibilties that surrounded the original Saint. With the Saint 810 redesign, the hubs received the same diameter Centerlock rotor mount as the other hubs in the group, rather than the oversized diameter on Saint 800. For use with Saint, we reccomend the Shimano SM-RT79 rotor. It's built tough, but manages to do it without a weight penalty.
So it is with disc brake rotors. Some think it's a small thing, but we love the devil, and she can be found in the details. This 203mm rotor is one of the many options available. Great for extreme riding, but it still shows Shimano knows how to get any part so it is both extremely strong and extremely light. The spider, with its long spokes (stiff and light), is a great example of XTR trickle down technology.
This Shimano SM-RT79 rotor mounts to Centerlock disc hubs only. Choose the outside diameter -- 160, 180, or 203mm -- that works best for your needs.

Needed more brakin power on my XC rig so i bought this rotor as big as it gets, all 203 mm's. ive got XTR calipers, shifters, and hubs and this XT rotor fit perfect on the front with the shimano adapter sold on here too. And the XT is a little cheaper and looks the same. I can finally feel comfortable using one finger on the brake hauling ass downhill. 203mm rotors look totally unnescessary on a XC setup.... i love it. I have the 180mm rotor for the rear in the mail. Get em big. oh and it comes with a new lock ring. the rear rotor in the pic is the stock 160mm XTR rotor.
