    Tsunami Alloy Rotor 160mm... anyone tried them?

    hyperbolts.com is selling them. Here is the link http://hyperbolts.com/catalog/produc...2bf8eec56987a4

    They have a claimed weight of 49g and come in an olive drab finish... I wonder if these will be an alternative to Stans Al rotors.

    A cut and paste from the site:
    Super light and strong for those looking for an edge
    Designed and manufactured in California, USA
    Precision laser cut from space age 7075-T6 Aluminum Alloy
    Hard anodized with penetration for enhanced surface wear properties
    Durable as steel but does not rust
    Will fit many systems with international standard ISO 160mm disc braking system by Hope, Avid, Magura, Shimano, etc.
    Why pay $40 for steel?
    Reduce your rotational weight and increase acceleration
    Reduce your un-sprung wheel weight
    Provides great stopping power
    Portion of the sales will support the USCF/NORBA Team EMC/Documentum
    Standard 44mm Bolt Circle Diameter - 6 Bolts
    Color: Military olive finish
    Thickness: 2mm
    Weight: 49 grams
    Durability: 1 to 2 years with organic/resin pads by Kool Stop only
    Use: general XC for riders under 180 lbs. Due to extreme popularity this item is available on a first come first serve basis.

    yeah.

    so foar they suck. i am running XTR brakes with the shimano resin pads. they squeal mercilessly and don't have stopping power. I am trying to figure out if I can make this work with maybe different pads. They are crazy light.
