    Galfer experts please come to the front of the line?

    In my never ending quest for the perfect brakes I am thinking of trying the Galfer set up. Rotors/pads/and brake lines.

    Current set-up
    I am running Hayes 9's. I have used tons of pads and rotor combos, and have been happy with the feel, power, and modulation of my brakes. Currently running Aztec pads on Hayes wavy rotors. Work well.

    Questions
    Where did you get your Galfer products?
    Can you give me some real world feedback?

    I ride in the North East where one ride can be dry to wet to dry again. My main goal in a brake set-up is control. I like to find a balance between super power to silky smooth modulation.

    thanks

    I bought all my Galfer stuff thur Universal Cycles. These guys are great. Their online store really works and you get your tracking numbers.

    As far as Galfer rotors and pads, I found them to me more powerful that stock 8" hayes equipment on my Hayes Mags. Galfer is good stuff. They only have one compound of pad and it is powerful IMO.

    My LBS ordered them from BTI.

    I use the rotors and pads with my Avid cable brakes.
    Compared to stock round rotors and EBC Gold pads the Galfers:
    Little power change in the dry.
    Pads have better modulation, not as much pure bite.
    Better wet performance.
    Better pad life, ~50% better.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Agree with shiggy, LBS can order them through BTI.
    I have been using the Wave rotors & pads for about 5 years & very happy with them. The Galfer pads on Hayes brake are much better than stock. The lines have to be ordered through a LBS, if the shop is not set up as a Galfer dealler they will need to. Does'nt take much to get setup, about 10 minutes.
