I run a brake on my bike and I fancy a black GSport Birdcage in black. I ride a brake, does the colour wear down quickly on a Gsport Birdcage?

Its hard-anodized so aslong as you use a clear pad it shouldn't wear too fast. If you use your brake to slow down and such, it will wear much faster than if you only use it for tricks.

All rims will wear down eventually, like tim said if you use clear pads it shouldn't wear down as fast though

G-Sport's hard anodizing won't really "wear down" for a long, long time. I ran a set of Rollcages for two years with front and rear brakes a lot of the time and there was absolutely no wear on either on them. You'll have them for years before you ever notice any wearing.

If you keep the pads & rims clean too that'll help keep the anodizing on there longer. Dirt, tiny rocks & other things can get stuck to your rim and/or brake pad and when you brake it drags that along the rim & slowly wears it down.

My Demo Zeros are red ano, nothing but clear pads on em, no wear after 2ish years.

I know Cinema 777 AR rims use the same paint quality as assualt rifles in the US army

I rock a black roll cage in the back with brakes and I use them constantly even when I'm just cruising so the rim gets a lot of break usage but no wear on color if anything it gets a little flat/matte color
