"I gave mechanical discs an honest try, with Avid bb7 and trp spyre. Even with compressionless housings, I still found the lever effort to be pretty heavy compared to a nice set of mini-v brakes with decent pads. Hydros are a different beast, both…"

Adam_Mac replied to Geoffrey Grosenbach's discussion CX Disc Impressions After a Year

Adam_Mac replied to Erik_A's discussion Single narrow / wide chainrings - performance in the mud for CX
"yup. Type 2. I raced at the regional 40 minutes no bike change. Never lost the chain or had a bad shift until last lap. I had to drop 3 speeds to get out of the 28 to the 23 or whatever the gear is 2 down from the 32. 42 x 11-32. Keeps me out of the…"

"Absolutely no problems in 2x fairly muddy races for me this year.  Including lots of leaves/grass clippings on both courses.  I run RaceFace ring with X9 short cage, and it seems like most of the mud just gets pushed out to the…"
