Rotor colors

Would it be odd if Disk Brake rotors could be another color like black, red, yellow or something? Or maybe have a paint that could stick on there w/out being rubbed off. In a sense, I think it would be pretty cool.

They have those already. I saw a few on ebay. They have a weight limit though, I think the maximum rider weight is something like 185 lbs.

Just curious, since most rotors are made from stainless steel and these Anodized Rotors are made from Aluminum, wouldn't these softer metal aluminum rotors wear really fast?

For the record, any coating would come off. The anodizing would, most likely, not gunk up your pads but after a couple of uses the coloration will wear away. I would also wonder about the stability of the aluminum under some of the heat that can be generated. Has anyone tried these to see if they warp? Does anyone know how much heat can be generated from a typical hydraulic brake set-up?

There's a guy on Pinkbike who will powdercoat bike components including rotors, maybe ask him to do it.

you wouldn't want to powder coat rotors, that would pretty much loose the whole purpose of the rotor itself. NOW what I do want is some of those, i think they're Magura, rotors with the red aerodynamic looking center section, those are hot.

[EDIT]

They are the Magura Louise, the rotors form those are hot



anyone seen the 10th anniversary Gustav M

I still think silver looks the best. The inside colors are nice however.
