I was gonna plunk down for a pair of not expensive rotors. I have Hope Mono Minis with worn original rotors on my Singlespeed. I really wanna get some Hope Floating rotors, but can't quite pony up $90 plus freight from CRC in the UK.
I was thinking of some Ashima rotors, or Aligator iWave rotors... mostly based on how they look. okay... I'm a tool of fashion. I don't tend to kill brakes, but I do weigh 215 these days. Hope Mono Minis are fine for my weight and riding, but if I put the wrong pads in them, I overheat them... so I'm guessing I'm on the edge of what these brakes can handle.
Then I saw Ti Nitride coated rotors. I remember Ti is a poor conductor of heat, but makes for a nice hard surface on tools that helps them last a while. Not sure how that would translate to brake rotors.
Like I said, I think I'm on the edge of what these can handle. A bad rotor might put me over the edge, and I might end up smoking these brakes.
Anybody have experience with them?
I guess the safe bet would be to get floating rotors, or get another set of stock non floating Hope rotors, but those are kinda expensive, too.
