    Rotor that won't warp

    The 203 front rotor I have heats up and warps badly (albeit temporarily) on long dhs. What's the beefiest/best rotor to combat this problem? Currently running Formula Oros w/an Alligator rotor.

    Don't have centerlock hubs and I don't think XTR comes in a 203.

    Formula rotors are very good
    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.

    I have had great luck with the Hope floating rotors. They handle heat much better than traditional rotors.

    When in Whistler, I lost function of my rear brake. I had to ride the roads back to the villiage. I never let off the front brake the entire trip down (amazing how much I use the rear brake for balance). No issues with the rotor, and I use sintered pads exclusively.

    Call Larry at Mountain High for the best prices on the rotors.

    Hayes V8s are my favorite thick and beefy (and cheap and easy to find) rotors.

    No problems with Avid Cleansweeps or Hayes V8s.

    Thanks for all the replies. Looks like Hope or Hayes is the call.

    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?
