Another disc

saw this on bike radar ...

Gallery: Taiwanese companies flex their component manufacturing muscle Review - BikeRadar

recall reading that the sand pits left enough grit in the holes in the edge of the discs
that pads wouldn't even last an hour, in the worlds .

sponsors scrambled with an overnight rush to get discs without holes ..

now the regular folks can get them ..

"recall reading" -- appropriate for a CX disc thread....

Those are interesting. Is there any reason not to have solid rotors when overheating isn't a concern? Is it just weight?
