    Avid mech's w/ Magura Marta rotors????

    Anyone running this combo? Have an extra set of the wavy SL rotors and will be running a set of the Avid Mech's on a spare bike - will it work , will it work well?? Looking to save a little bit of weight and I also like the looks of the Marta rotors.

    Thanks

    Once you have'em... giv'em a try and let us know.

    Only incompatibility issue should be if the brake track width is smaller on the martha's (if your pads start contacting the rotor arms). But it's more an annoyance than a real issue.

    Let us know how it went.
