I'm interested in the Alligator STARLITE rotor... or the WindCutter (Sawtooth?) They are light weight and look pretty cool. ( I guess the gold Ti coating wears off pretty quickly and makes little difference from what I've read).

Anyway - QUESTIONS:

1) How long have you run them?
2) How is the stopping power?
3) What brake pads do you use or recommend?

Any other comments?

Much thanks!

I think the rotors on my bike are the Alligator Wind-Cutter...? Anyhow, I am going to be using the 180mm rotors front and rear with Formula R1 brakes. I am still waiting for the brakes to come in, so I cannot comment on their performance as of yet, but I can tell you the following:

Weight: 180mm rotor #1 weighed 109g on my scale, 180mm rotor #2 weighed 110g on my scale. That is pretty darn light for a 180mm rotor, and I would say good consistency from one rotor to the next.

Initial Quality: They look to be well built

Looks: They are dead gorgeous, and mine aren't even the Ti-coated ones.

Well, all I got for you is that I have the ti-nitrite coated windcutters (180/160) in Juicy 7's with Avid pads, they work fine (like rotors do) and the gold coating has worn through.
Any squeal or shudder issues? I was recommended these rotors and organic pads in order to get rid of the shudder.
