    Best pads for Alligator Cirrus/Aries & XT-775

    I just switched out my Hayes V6 rotors for Alligator (gatorbrake?) Cirrus/aries rotors on my XT 775 disc brakes. I am very happy with their performance. They are a little stronger, a little less firm at the lever and tend to ramp up a bit at the very end of the stroke. They are also quite a bit lighter and cheap! I wanted to know which pads work the best with these rotors. I can't stand noisy brakes, so only the quiet pads will do! THanks for the tips!

    I'm using these Aries rotors (there seem to be two types) with Hygia SLPs, but they use the same pads as XT/XTRs. The discobrakes Alu Super Light pads work well and are never noisy except for in the rain when they squeal for a moment just as you apply the brakes.
