Pros: Free with BB5 and BB7 brakes.

Cons: Heavy, ugly, hold heat, warp and glaze over very quickly.

Recommendation: No matter what kind of brake you are running, an upgrade to almost any other kind of rotor will be better than staying with these.

Pros: stop the bike, hold glaze

Cons: heavy, bend, heat dissipation

Recommendation: These came stock with Avid BB5 brake and they work well, but it is obvious that they are lower end when you point the bike downhill for any kind of distance. They heat up quick and lose braking power.

Model/Year: 2010 Roundagon

Pros: -They work

Cons: -Make a lot of noise
-Do not work well with other brands' calipers
-Bend easy

Recommendation: If you need some cheap rotors that do their job, these will do. I recommend and prefer the Clean Sweep rotor over these if you are using an Avid braking system.
