Some things aren't worth shaving grams on. Use some common sense.

I've used Brews for years. Raced on them. When I weighed 150, they weren't a problem, even on technical descents.

Now, at 200, they can get a bit scary on those same descents.

It's not so much the weight that makes the difference, I think those Cat brakes are just plain ugly.
You don't hear "stupid light" enough these days... (nm)retro
