    No good Sqeaky Louise and rotor choice

    My Magura Louise FR's are making a lot of noise since changing the pads. Until now I was so proud of how quiet they were. Any Advice

    I need new rotors for a new wheel set. I ride a 5 spot roudy xc and a fair amount of singles. I'd love light weight, been thinking about aluminum but not sure. They are advised for one year use. Are they more prone to bend ? What's the weight on Magura stock 160 and 180mm? Can anyone suggest brands for either alum or steel?

    What pads did you use?

    I've noticed that different compounds make a big difference.

    The Maggie pads are nice n quiet, the EBC greens are also quiet, but the EBC golds make more/different noise. Not really unpleasant, but different. The EBC golds last the longest for me, but I'm unsure whether they are a "problem" for the brakes or not (I think not, but i'm no "ethpert").
