I have got through about three sets of rear pads in the last weeks and calculated that one set of pads would last about 2500 vertical meters descent. mmm... Potential for an expensive summer! A couple of days ago my rear rotor completly let go of its hold on life during a descent, luckily I managed to stay in the saddle, but essentialy the rear wheel locked and the fragments of the rotor caused havic around the caliper!
Clearly I let the rotor get far too thin, thats my own stupid fault, but I have been trying to work out how this would increase pad wear...any ideas out there?
My only thought at the moment would be heat.
