Brake Conversion

System 6 isn't discontinued, 4 (the 323mm euro S8s that Linus referred
to) and 5 (the 345mm rotor) are.

There was a lot of noise about the missing 1mm of disc width per side
the caliper used being "terribly dangerous design".  Yeah, right.
Lack of demand also led to their demise.

Crescent City has usually had very good prices among the sellers
commonly referenced for the OEM parts.
