I like the brakes for what I use them for. I mainly ride flat stuff. They are amazingly light, I just weighed one of the caliper without holders and it was 34 grams haha! Only 1 gram heavier than your average fork expander!

Goo looking ride! Great job on that.

You might want to check your bake shoes though. It seems that the brake shoe you pictured on page one is upside down. The shoe should follow the curve of the rim.

Picked up my new ultimate bar today and I also got my THM crank!!!!! The THM with rotor q rings is 488 grams. Should save 176 grams. Also the BB is going to save around 14 grams!! My old pro vibe carbon bar was at 205 grams the new ultimate was 173. Then I cut some off the end and it's now at 167 grams :) My ax lightness post is going to come tomorrow also. Will post some pics tomorrow!

I wanted to try out the rotor q rings. Also they are quite a bit lighter that the osymetric rings.

Thanks! I would really like to try and get it under 13..... Im going to do the shifter cables in i links which should save another ounce. Im also going to get an extra light stem, and an aluminum cassette. I think it will be close!

I haven't tried the rotors yet but I'm going for a ride later and I'll post some feed back. Also I'm picking up a pair of mad fibers! I'll post some pics tonight
