Stop that Squeak – Install New Rotors and Sand Pads

The break squeal/squeak of my SRAM brakes have been annoying the crud out of me since I purchased the bike. I've been trying different things to get them to be quite. It seems like every fix is short lived. I have a theory that the rotors may be heating up too much so I decided to get better ones and to also sand the pads like the shop explained to me. We'll see if this works.

I'm just a guy in Northern California that loves riding bikes. Most of my time is spent on a mountain bike. I also own a single speed for around town and commuting. Last but not least I own a cross bike. I couldn't bring myself to buy a road bike just so I could do long road rides that had more climbing than I could handle on the SS. That was my compromise. I'm originally from Pennsylvania and have that blunt east coast attitude. Some people love it, some people hate it. Either way I wake up in the morning.
