    Best Alternate Rotors for Juicy

    The Polygon's that I have are still making a sort of "Shuddering" noise that has been there for a while now, and I cleaned my rear rotor which was the dirtiest, and there are still strange blotch marks every 1 inch on the braking surface.

    If I must buy rounded rotors, which ones work the best with the Juicy 7's?

    take a block of wood and some sand paper and go around the whole rotor and rough it up...then re - try...make sure your pads are clean (not contaminated.....buy new ones if they are)
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    Its not a matter of cleanliness...its a matter of engineering, and many Juicy 7 riders have the "shuddering" problem.

    not cleanliness................ just resurfacing the rotor to have a new "grabbing point"

    Actually it is. When rotors are new if they are not broken in correctly the transfer film( which creates the majority of the braking friction) deposited by the pads will distribute unevenly leading to the brake pulsing, this is also a problem with High performance aftermarket car brakes. By sanding the rotors and cleaning the transfer film off you can start over and hopefully break them in correctly. What usually causes the problem is when people don't follow the break in procedure and end up dragging the brakes very lightly, this causes uneven transfer film depositing.

    the original round avid rotors, or hayes. both my juicy sets are with the avid round rotors; never have had a single shudder.

    There are certain areas that you need to shave a litttle bit with a dremel. I think it's between the waves.

    Hayes rotors work fine with them. I'm running my old 203mm round Hayes rotors with the Avids. The Juicys have a narrow braking path than the blade of the rotor, but the pads maintain contact, and everything works fine.

    Galfer rotors are nice.

    the avid clean sweep rotor is the rotor I ended up using, I tried almost every rotor available....

    it still suffered from some shuttering, specifically low speed breaking.

    What is the proper way to break in brakes?

    its also good to put a little alcohol on the rotors, give them a good clean (off the bike of course cuz it might damage the seals in the calipers) to eliminate any greese

    I use the Hayes round rotors without the V cut. 8"& 6". The stuttering went away but they still squeel every once in a while. I didn't notice any change in power. They're cheap too.

    Here's some on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/HAYES-6-inch-dis...QQcmdZViewItem
