Need something to spice up your bike, but don't want to break the bank? Set you apart from the crowd, subtle yet intriguing, add some fashion with no compromise in performance? Dirty Dog might have something for you if you're looking for a new rotor, stem or cable guides
.Dirty DogMTB rotors
Dirty DogMTB started in 2005 making only three laser cut rotors in San Francisco, California. The company has grown to offer four laser cut rotors, one stamped rotor, cable guides and their first stem offering. With the standard 6 bolt pattern, laser cutting for precision and to prevent warping, comparable performance and pricing to other manufacturers, these rotors are an option if you're looking for something cool to replace your current rotors. Made of US sourced stainless steel, the rotors are first designed on paper, a CAD drawing and finally to the CNC machine. Rotors come with a two year warranty on manufacturer defects, not rider error. All rotors are 0.07" thick and meticulously tested prior to release.
Dirty DogMTB has a number of rotors to choose from depending on what you're looking for, from skulls and spiders webs to fire breathing dragons.
160 mm - 147 g - $68.95 USD
185 mm - 186 g - $74.95 USD
203 mm - 248 g - $79.95 USD(203 mm Shimano Saint rotor weighs 197 g)
160 mm Rohloff compatible - $74.95 USD
160 mm stamped rotor - 109 g - $38.95 USD
The 186gram, 185mm Dragon Rotor replaced the 120gram XT rotor on my Pivot Firebird.
When the rotors were installed on my bikes the pads required adjusting. They seem to be thicker than the rotors they replaced. Once the pads were adjusted the brakes initially felt spongy. After a break in period consisting of 5 -10 hard stops they felt predictable with comparable performance to the rotors they replaced.
Dirty DogMTB also does these neat skull cable guides that are available in red, white, and black colors. The cable runs under the skull and above the zip tie to cinch it down without pinching the cable. Why you ask? Because!
|Perhaps not for the weight minded rider since they are heavier than other options out there, but they add some uniqueness to your bike that will turn heads. This is the mission of Dirty Dog, to leave your mark.- Sharon Bader |
