I am converting from V-brakes to disc. I am thinking of buying Stan's 252 gram Formula B4SL kit but am concerned about his warning that his rotors may squeal more than stainless rotors-especially when wet. Before buying I wonder if anyone has used Stan's alum disc rotors? Do they indeed squeal when dry too?
Any other brand suggestions instead?
Thanks!

Just got back from a trip abroad so I haven't had the time to bleed the brakes.
As soon as I do I'll post a report on them.
From what I've heard they are just as good as the Formula ones.

Hey,
I have used Stan's aluminum rotors for about a year and a half. They do squeal-not all the time and not real loud, but most of the time. The pads necessary are softer, too. They don't have the "bite" of semi-metallic pads, and are nothing like the full sintered pads.
That said, they are plenty powerful for most people, most of the time. I'm usually happy with them, until I go on some epic ride in WV or PA with long, technical descents.
