I'm building up a bike and going with disc brakes for the first time.
The weight diff. is only 8 grams between the sevens and fives so that is a moot point.
Is the speed dial lever worth an extra $50? What advantages does this dial have and how often do you have to use it? And if you do not have it on the fives, what do you have to do instead? I have no idea what this dial does but everyone seems to be getting sevens and not fives.
The new fives have the new rotor so the basic question is--- are the sevens worth $50?
