Have people been using the Mean Streak rotor also or keeping the C10's?

Looks like the C10 rotor doesn't work; 6 bolts vs 7 bolts on the Mean Streak wheel. Here's a link...

I turned down the OD of the Meanstreak rotor because it came with the rim. Worked fine

I went with a Nomad rotor off of Fleabay. Easy fit-up, but can be difficult to find used in serviceable condition. The previous pair were worn to the service limit.

As already stated, the C10 rotor unfortunately has too few bolts and won't work.  The Mean Streak rotor is too large (300 mm)and needs to be turned down to 280 mm to work.  I used the Mean Streak rotor without turning it down or machining the wheel, but made my own caliper bracket to make it work.  My guess is most people who do the conversion use the Nomad rotor.  Just curious, from the pictures of you bike, it appears you already have the Mean Streak wheel installed, are you looking for another rotor? 

There are a pair of Nomad rotors on ebay now, you can use one and sell the other to another C10 owner  :great:

I'm not in the market right now with so many other things I gotta do, but I'm thinking about getting a rear rotor that has a similar appearance to the front...
