It would be interesting to see statistics on the percentage of disc braked bikes racing at nationals, and also the percentage of winners on discs. I have never seen any concrete numbers regarding…Continue
"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…"
"Funny this is really going through my head right now as my canti Crux is three years old and getting a little long in the tooth, so it’s do I upgrade what I have to go to a new disc bike? I have been on new hydro bike and see that they are…"
"Interesting thoughts. I was also on disc brakes for the first time this year.
My wife and I both swapped over to discs. My race bike has S700 hydro-r on it, pit bike TRP Spyre, wife's race bike has TRP Spyre and pit bike TRP…"
"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…"

Frame, fork, headset. GXP sleeve pressed into BB30 shell. No BB included. Avid shorty ultimate brakes included.Only real cosmetic blem is paint chipping around BB from regionals where I had 3x chain drops. Did not impact or scar the structural carbon. I also have some Major Tom wheels or GL330s with Shimano600 hubs (36h) that could be worked in if interested. Frame (not fork) is disc compatible (130mm), but can fit 135mm at your discretion if you wanted.700 obo + negotiation for tubular…See More
"I also found it interesting in the velo article that Powers had planned (supposedly) to move back over to cantilevers for his Euro campaign. Citing them as easier to work on, since he has to do his own wrenching. I am still on the fence…"
"I thought I'd weigh in as having recently gone to disc. I was in the common situation having a canti bike with 3 sets of tubular wheels built up for it. I never had a problem with cantis and never had stopping issues. I wasn't happy with…"
"Being that you don't own tubulars now, you are much better positioned to make the switch over to discs without having to sell multiple wheelsets.
I have raced the last 3 seasons on cantilever/clinchers then cantilever/tubulars and…"
