    Other Rotors with Elixirs

    Hey Guys,
    Looking to replace my G3 Rotors, has anyone had better success with other brand rotors. Thinking maybe the Marta SL rotors? I'm running 180/160.

    I'm using Shimano, Magura, and hope with my Avids, works well, less noise too.

    Running an XTR centerlock rotor out back, Cleansweep X on the front w/ Elixir R's. Back brake is silent. Front gobbles, I don't mind the gobble though. At speed it turns from a gobble into one of the coolest mechanical sounds around...kind of a buzz.

    Had to file off about 1/2 mm of non functional material from the bottom of the caliper so it wouldn't interfere w/ the XTR spider. It was no big deal, about 10 seconds with a Dremel.

    I'm running an Alligator rotor up front and a G3 clean sweep on the back. I went from 180mm rotors F/R to 180/160mm F/R. Too much brake on the rear wheel.

    For the front I just used a Shimano 180mm caliper adapter. The rear, stuck with the Avid stuff.

    avid rotors are 185. most others are 180. I filed down my avid 185 adapter by 2.5 mm. It works. I hate avid (turkey gobble) rotors. I like alagator seration and iwave. better to find a deal on a brand other than avid. they are too much trouble. $ .02
