TriCross 2011 - disk brakes?

Postby Valy » Fri Aug 06, 2010 17:21 pm

Since CX can now have disk brakes, I'm wondering whether the 2011 TriCross range will have them?

Does anyone have good guesses or know whether disk brakes will come to many CX bikes at all?

Thanks.

Focus have been doing discs on their CX bikes for the last few years.

the Mares cross disc is one.

not sure that Wiggle brought any into the UK but we have sold a lot out here.

I'd think the 2011 range is probably finished already ? 2012 i reckon everyone will have them.

I am guessing we'll see any future CX bikes either with disks or the option of.

I bloody hope so, cos canti's just don't cut it really, going from my MTB to CX can cause heartstopping moments with the lack of braking power.

Wonder if retro fitting will be an option?

depending on the drop out shape the A2Z adaptor could work.
