You could have saved yourself a whole lotta typing by reading the OP's question.deuxdiesel said:I've used Paul's, TRP's, Avid's and a couple of others, and not one of them came close to the nasty weather performance of the BB5's I had on my old Cannondale CX bike, and those paled by comparison to the BB7's I eventually went with. It will take some time, but I feel there will be many new bikes with them in the future. 135 rear spacing (hopefully on CX disc bikes) hubs are plentiful and run the gamut of quality and pricing. What's not to love about it?
Shimano just needs to turn the old XTR dual controls 90 degrees.davidka said:I doubt whole cyclocross market isn't large enough to warrant the development if a dedicated Shimano STI/SRAM doubletap hydraulic lever set. Any way, the weight penalty is more than the fast guys are going to want to pay.
If the fast guys need to add some weight to their uberlight CX carbon bikes, I think adding discs is a logical next step. A 15lb bike with discs is more desirable than a 15lb bike with cantis.......IMO.davidka said:. Any way, the weight penalty is more than the fast guys are going to want to pay.

while i'm sure you'll be able to buy more "cx" bikes w/ disc brakes next year than you can this year, i'm also pretty sure you won't see any pro/elite racers using them. canti's work fine for racing, they provide the slowing power that a racer needs. what most people don't take into account when ranting on and on about disc brakes and racers, is that w/ the limited traction of a 32mm tire, combined w/ the non-existent need to slow down very much while racing...disc brakes will over-power the traction of the tire. they're overkill.
if you're riding your "cx" bike like a mtb, completely different story.
