    I'm kinda partial to shopping at PricePoint...take your pick HERE

    Got no problems w/ JensonUSA either - they have a nice selection HERE
    Check out the Dirty Dogs - kinda pricey, but kinda cool

    yeah...I know.
    I'm sure the $$ is just for the 'cool' factor,,, not for any more performance.
    I sure wouldn't mind getting the skull ones as a gift
    What don't you like about the roundagons? just too plain-jane? or are you having performance issues?

    the roundagons are obnoxiously loud. and they fill up with muck really quickly. im probably going to get the clean sweeps or something like it.

    I don't have problems w/ mine, but I understand where you might be coming from. There is soooo much surface area on the roundagons, that it is easy to get harmonic vibrations - especially when wet or really clean (a little dust is good ). Also, I can see how they would be just about the worst as far as shedding muck.
    I, also would go for some 'clean-sweeps' If I ever needed to change my Octomoms - People like em and they're fairly inexpensive

    I'm kinda happy not needing the benefits of a more-slotted rotor(my trails are dry / slightly dusty) as my wallet is empty right now
    -Definitely can't afford any Dirty Dogs!

    did you end up testing those rotors out? I'm curious because I was looking at the same rotors, and having trouble finding any kind of experience with those... they are the spitting image of the G2s, which get rave reviews...

    I checked PP, they have some good deals on Maggie rotors. Some of my favorites, especially the "drilled SL" rotor. Can't lose, especially at those prices.

    I use the Alligator Serration Disc Brake Rotor with my BB7s. they work just fine and they are only $15 ea. in 160mm.

    Thanks, went with 180 up front and 160 in the rear on those alligators... the mags were tempting, but after my most recent mud-packed ride, I'm already sold on the "clean sweep" style.

    Smaller Rotor = No Problem?

    Just because I'm retentive and nerdy, I wanted to confirm that you experienced no problems with the slightly smaller rotor (i.e. going to the 180mm Alligators from the stock 185mm Roundagons)?

    Thanks for the response. I'm not sure why I assumed you went with 180/185mm...

    Yup... and I love my BB7s. While I just upgraded both front and rear brakes (from Tektros ), I'm a clyde who habitually breaks/bends things, so I'm just anticipating what I will need to do when the inevitable occurs...
