    Check ebay and LBS for pads. Better yet get new pads with an upgrade to SLX and be amazed. The Avid HS1 rotor is 94 g and can be sourced from Asian sellers for $24 or so.

    I have bought replacement pads for Avid BB7's from Discobrakes but might also check Scrub:

    I've used these on my Juicy 5's with great success. Quieter than sintered metallic pads, more durable than organic resin pads.

    I really like these, been using the sintered metal pads on several different brakes for over 2 years with great results.

    Hope Floating rotors generally run $50 a piece, on the cheap side. Why not just upgrade to a complete set of new brakes?

    Picked up some Trucker Co. Juicy pads at auction, $16 for two pair. Work good so far.

    Both Jagwire and Kool-Stop make pretty descent pads that fit Avid.
    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    I'm a fan of EBC Gold, but not sure if they're 29-er specific.

    Also check out Brake Authority pads. I rate them very highly.

    As for Hope rotors. They are excellent, but as stated above, it might be more worthwhile to replace your brakes than to upgrade your rotors.
