Guess I've not been on Chinertown much in the last few months.

Since August, I have retired the Stache 7 and replaced it with a Stache 9.8, rear hub problem solved.

Hey Carbon_Dude, what size brake rotors would you recommend for a Stache (or Chiner equivalent 29+)?

Basically the biggest rotors you can fit, the 29+ wheels and tires can withstand a lot of braking forces.  Also, the bigger rotors allows for lower braking effort at your levers.
