    ummmm, what do you want to know? It is a rotor, it does what brake rotors do...
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    Actually they are Avid "Roundagon" rotors. That's whe they call em anyway. They are Avids low end rotor, they're serviceable and work fine. But are less than stellar when it comes to heat disapation when compared to other Avid rotors like the G2 and G3 clean sweeps. That and they're a bit heavier as well. Not much else to say about them. As Uncle noted, they're brake rotors, they do what brake rotors do.

    search "roundagon" you'll find the kind of read you want. to ask this kind of question, you must be bored anyways.

    Roundagons are not the same as Polygons. Polygons came with 2005(?) Avid Juicy brakes.

    Polygons came in around the same weight as the original Cleansweep rotors.

    Roundagon

    so was it the roundagon or the polygon which quite a few folks blamed for the famous Avid turkey warble?
