    If you do a search you'll see that many people don't like them (lousy coefficient of friction from what I hear). I personally am going to try Stan's (even though they are a bit pricy) and if I don't like them, I'm goin to the hope floating rotors.

    SPAM to follow:

    I used my ti rotors twice. they are sick light. they are pretty lame when wet but good when dry. they are also now for sale. they are the same as this guy is selling on ebay

    I only want $50 for the pair. I paid $130 last year.

    "Stan's rotors cheap" is kind of an oxymoronic phrase

    one buys Stans' to lose preicous grams for elite level xc racing..these light al. rotors wearout faster than steel rotors, hense having to replace them more often.

    buy them and enjoy them as premium stuff for those with disposal cash....the riders with budgets need not bother with them.

    personally i'd invest money on where you improve on power output (go faster!) or on braking performance (stop faster)...like lightest disk wheelsets (goes faster) or 8" rotor(s) (stops faster!). if you already have the lightest wheel sets than get a 2nd set for dfferent set of tires (1.9" slicks or 2.4+" "monster" knobbies)

    SPAM: check out Dave's SpeedDreams site for them lighter disk weelsets, custom assembled and "affordable" (to me).

    I'm not saying Ti is better for this application but isn't it funny how a Ti rotor can sell for $55 and an aluminum one is $95?

    I'd just stick with steel unless someone sells reasonably priced aluminum ones.

    But what do I care, I run v-brakes.
