I can state with authority that the bigger the rotor, the longer the pads last-- my disc bike has 180/160, and the front pads last as long as the rears, despite the front doing almost all of the work. I know a dude with 140s on a Spesh Tarmac, he's never gotten more than 3,000 miles out of a set of pads. I get 8-9k. Though in fairness he uses those idiotic superlight rotors that probably get overheated from just sitting in the sun. It might not be a fair comparison.
