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. That was my compromise to be able to ride with the lady. 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.
