    Juicy 7 Rotors & Pads

    taco'd my rear rotor yesterday and need to replace it. ive been running the same rotors & pads for nearly 2 years now (original on both items) so i figure ill replace front & back since its been so long.

    anyhow, i was just planning on going with avid G3 cleensweeps & avid b-4 pads as that is what the brakes came with and i have never had any problems to speak of once they were broken in (probably just jinxed myself!).

    is there any reason i should be replacing with different pads and/or rotors than what i listed? figured it would be worth double checking...

    thanks

    If it isn't broke, don't fix it. I would stay with what has been working.

    that is what i was thinking... just wanted to make sure there wasnt some secret squirrel reason not to get those particular rotors and/or pads.

    Why would you want your rotors Ti-Nitride coated? Doesn't that increase surface hardness? It's not like you need the rotors to stay sharp and cut stuff... And I've seen relatively few rotors rust.

    And it looks pretty bad now that the gold is wearing off.

    yeah, the Ti-nitride is really just good for keeping rust off the spline sections. It looks cool though. only $7 more than the regular version.
    The rotor still looks sharp, it's just the picture isn't so great.
