Strengths:    Lightweight. Engagement seems adequate. They roll :-)

Weaknesses:    Freehub bearing went rough on rear hub after just 1,500 miles. Probably just a bad bearing or bad seal, but still an issue. Velocity is a local company where I live so a replacement bearing at no cost was available the next day through my lbs. Will follow up again to see if same problem arises.

Bottom Line:   
Nice looking set up hubs built up on Velocity Aerohead rims with Sapim spokes. Weight came in at 1,420 grams on the lbs scale w/o skewers. W/skewers the weight was 1,525.

Need a light low priced disc frame for the road

Sorry to be in the CX forum but that seems to be where all the disc knowledge lives. I'm itching to see the new BikesDirect bikes but September is a ways off. Best options I've seen so far were a used Salsa Las Cruces (why don't they still make it ?) Or perhaps this BikesDirect cafe sprint ... Read More »
