on my TMR02, since the rear is BMC's own proprietary brake setup, i'm probably stuck with that. but for my front brake caliper, i'm using my Red caliper, which is 127g. is there an aero version of it that is lighter in weight without sacrificing stopping power?

thanks~

Not sure about lighter as the Red calipers are pretty light, but check out the simkins egg and the TriRig Omega X for some pretty slippery front brakes
