For those seeking that important 30 gram* loss of weight. ( * for front + rear and not including any possible rotor weight reduction)

The new BB7S brakes ship with the HS1 rotor, which is said to be an improvement over the classic G2 Cleansweep rotor in that it displaces heat a little better and works better in wet weather. It certainly looks the part, and likely weighs a hair less. Speaking of weight, the BB7S caliper weighs just 197 g as opposed to the classic BB7′s which eclipsed 212 g.
always good to see a review based on such a nice orange bike seems that the owner has now swapped from drop bars to flats....
I just hope they don't squeal as much when they are wet.
