    Aluminum Brake Rotors?

    Has anyone used anything like these?"

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=7132492440

    They are anly 42 grams each, & look like a quick way to shave a ton of rotational weight off of a decent wheel set. I really hate the idea of mounting 130 gram steel rotors on a lightweight set of Mavic Crossmax SL's. Kinda defeats the purpose.

    The mfg recommends a 180lb rider weight limit & claims thay last 1-2 years.

    For $63 a pair I think I'd be willing to try them.

    If anyone has used these before, how is the durability, do they warp easy, are they worth it? Comments?

    You'll be lookin at yearly rotor replacement. More if you are a hard rider.

    Lightweight tires would be much more effective at reducing rotational weight.
