    Weight of the Aluminum vs. Steel Backed Avid Pads

    Does anybody know the weights of the steel and alu backed Avid BB7 organic pads? Is the weight savings worth the extra few bucks?

    Don't know about Avid,but my Hayes Stroker Gram alu backed pads weight 5 grams less than the Stroker Trail steel backed ones. That's a gigantic 20 grams saving
    Gajas what?
