    Galfer Rotors and Pads

    i've heard these things are pretty awesome.
    anyone have experience with them?
    i'm considering upgrading my hardtail's 6" rear avid mech
    to a galfer rotor and pads.
    is ~$80 worth it?

    Love 'em.
    Rotors:
    Not much power difference in the dry. Noticeably better in the wet. Much better pad life.

    Pads:
    (Compared to EBC Golds) Better modulation. Slightly less outright power.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
