Hope floating discs

Postby Futureboy » Tue May 29, 2007 19:08 pm

Anyone around here use them?

I was thinking about getting some, but have heard that they can start "rattling" over time. Has anyone experienced this?

Are they worthwhile over standard fixed rotors. Are they purely for bling factor?

You've had them 6 months but how far have you ridden and how hard do you ride?

One of the guys at work who races has got the slightly thinner ones that come with the Works version and they've started rattling after only a couple of months.

No probs with mine. They are lighter than the normal disks and look the biz. They seem to stay cooler. so they qre not marketing hype
