Speaking of water and events... After about 80km in the rain yesterday I found my rim brakes pretty much useless until I had given them a workout. Glad I wasn't tailing someone with disk brakes.

Come on now, that kind of attitude will lead to banning freehubs like in the drome.
Don't you want a boost hub for your roadie? Innovation shall be the death of compatibility! Disposable bikes for all!

CX is 135mm (or 12x142).
Road disc is still 130mm I think

I'm eyeing up this for February - 142x12 rear

As for Taupo, yeah, my rim brakes were beyond hopeless - that was a slower ride because of it, but I still managed to get under the time I was training for :)

So should we expect to see any/all of the peleton fielding discs in the Tour down Under?

As I understand it, the manufacturer are currently only offering discs on their endurance road models not their out and out race models.

Off the top of my head I can think of two brands doing "race" bikes with discs, Colnago with the V1-R DIsc and C60 Disc, and Specialized with the Tarmac Disc. I'm sure there are more.
