Looks like it has veins. When you bleed your brakes...does it cry?

Hey, since you're into the whole "red" thing...why not ditch the IRC's and get some Panaracer Fire FR redwalls.

What type of paint did you use? Heat tolerant to what degrees? And what did you do to prep the rotor so it won't flake or come off? Oooohhhh! I would do mine on the hardtail black! Tell us, Mel!!!!!

Stuck between a SC Blur or Heckler at full retail or a Moots at cost.

My preferance would be a heckler, only because it is the "biggest" of the three. I like DH and FR. I don't think you could go wrong with any though.
