shot down in flames question? would these fit hope brakes (mini) if i wished to change disc’s
I found that they heat up much faster due to the lack of mass. They also eat pads. I wouldn’t buy them again.
There’s no reason why not, as long as the diameter matches what you currently have.
is it me or is there next to no material around the bolt holes?
sorry but i’d rather have the 48 grams of metal
I’ve got a pair – one with an avid juicy 7 caliper and another with a Formula Oro. No problem with the Juicy but with the Oro I get an ‘ABS’ effect – ie pulsing in the braking effect and it takes a longer / stronger pull to get the same braking effect. I think it’s something to do with the small pads in the formula – they’re just slightly bigger than the holes in the rotor. In the end I took it off and got a XT which is heavier but stops better.
I’ve been running these on Elixir’s.
I agree with above story, they are awesome, they look cool, they are strong.
I don’t think they need anymore metal, they keep everything cool. But no wonder.
Buy them, use them, race them.
Look great, super lightweight but they bend easy, so careful
I can think of a good reason to not want these rotors:
At the risk of being shot down – is that a rotor fitting fail? It’s on backwards!
