    Formula Disk Brakes for Lightweights

    Are Formula K24's good brakes for light weight riders? I ride mostly xc trails and technical single track. I am not a very aggresive rider. I weigh 125lbs. Coming off of V-Brakes, I am a little worried that these brakes might be too powerful for me. What do you think?

    just run 160mm rotors (maye even a 140mm in the rear) and you should be fine... you will need to get used to "feather" the brakes, since most hydro disc brakes will probably feel "too powerful" at the beginning....
