@fullfacemike: Good points Mike. I'd like to add that the quality of the bolt impacts clamp load of the rotor, even when torqued correctly. You just don't know were the yield point is on questionable bolts. Ive had rotor bolts that were barely harder than pot metal. Using a new good quality bolt, preferably with proper loctite is a must.

@UtahBikeMike: Those are things that prevent pad rattle, taper wear and encourage pad retraction. With a correctly designed and torqued joint, it should not be possible to spin the rotor when braking. And your right about aftermarket pads rattling.Most of the time it is from undersized backing plates. The flip side is you can get more even pad wear with more of a loose fit do to less binding and better retraction.

@shredteds: You are correct. My point was it isn't the primary mode. But hey, thanks for the backhanded insult. BTW, I'm on the couch, not the chair.

@eimechanics: So explain to me why your car doesn't clunk when braking in reverse? For the bolts to be in sheer preventing the rotor from turning, it would need to be a slip joint due to the rotor hole size clearance. Oh, and it actually the tire that stops the bike. :)

@thuren: As designed its a good system but yea, It will tell you when installed haphazardly. (sp) The Centerlock is probably a more robust system, but a bit heavier on average? Its a lot like Beta vs VHS. All depends who adopts it first.... :)

@shredteds: But the friction under the bolt doesn't come into play until the friction between the rotor and hub is overcome. And at that point the bolts would no longer be in tension and placed in shear due to the rotor being loose. So the friction under the bolt never is part of the equation.

@billreilly: Yup. But not designed to be. That's all I was trying to convey. Your right though, that could be one of the failure modes.
