Do you think you'll see many SingleSpeed CX bikes equipped with disc brakes for 2011?

I'm not sure I'd want to negate the weight benefits of singlespeed by adding disc brakes... Plus, the whole aesthetic of a singlespeed bike is steeped in simplicity. Disc brakes are less simple than cantis or V-brakes for lots of reasons.

I certainly don't plan on making the switch myself.

I enjoy waving my middle finger at "traditionalists," so hell yeah, disc brakes, flat bar, singlespeed!


It would be amusing to build a "high tech" single speed bike. 

Like this one I raced this season. Definitely not lightweight, but I think we will see a comparable to cantis light disc set up for the CX crowd in the coming years.



Beardedbiker, That is NOT a cross bike, just a skinny tired 29er.
