Could not find a decent thread on rotors through search so here's a new one with some simple to answer questions, hopefully:
I just got G&J brake lines, plan on bleeding the lines, new Dot4 etc., but figured, why not get new rotors and pads at the same time?
I don't think I can afford the $500 jobbies and I hear they are not all that and a bag of chips (warping, etc.) Background info: I live 4 hours from the nearest track, have never been, but plan to, don't brake hard, but know that the added benefit of brake lines, new rotors, and pads will help the bike immensely.
So a couple of questions:
1) I've seen other 'wave' rotors on eBay - the Chinese assortment, for much cheaper than brand name rotors. Are they dangerous? Are they better, or worse than stock? If they are better than stock, and not dangerous, I'd bite. If they are crap, then of course I'll save up for the real stuff.
2) What 'wave' rotors, or rotor replacements, would you guys recommend? Even if they are the pricey ones, I can always save up, but if the knock-offs will suffice, or even if they are better than stock, I might try them.
LDH, I'm compiling a list of parts I need to get from you someday - chain/sprocket setup to begin with!
