    What would the benefit be of a floating rear disc?

    o_Ostops your rear disc from warping when you finally decide to use the pedal and the piston seizes.

    but TBH I probably over use my rears and have managed to warp them, reckon its because I have a nasty habit of keeping the rear brake on when stationary?

    Well I went with the galespeed one in the end, quite basic and it sits on 4 bobbins that bolt into the wheel, but it's just a bolt on mod.
