If this is well known, sorry. Just saw this: http://www.bikerumor.com/2012/10/12/das ... ent-178972

So very impressive.

Certainly a nice disc....at a nice price. An economical option that's been around for 25 years is the Accel II:

While they list a 680g weight, the actuals I saw a few places on the web suggest it's more like upper 800's. Still, signficantly lighter than nearly all discs out there.

... that's great, but the Lightweight Autobahn is lighter and has a higher weight limit.

... and it [Lightweight Autobahn] also "shimmers" in the light when it is in motion.

Thought the lightweight autobahn was flat not lenticular?? Could be wrong (often am!). It does look gorgeous in real life! Although I preferred liked the old white with black spokes one.
