As Cyclocross season looms, racers are dialing in what they will ride for the season that for only the second time in US history will take us deep into January. This season looks to be a good one.
Around the Moots shop the Cyclocrossers have been dialing in bikes for a good while. This week we take a look at Simon Demby-Myers new Psychlo X Disc. We have been doing disc brake mounts on cross bikes before it was the rage…..and believe me, this year it’s going to be the rage. Unless you are an old school-got too many wheel sets-and cantis-rule kinda person, you should really check them out. Even for me (as described in previous sentence) they represent a huge advancement for the sport. Plus, I think this will help turn people onto cross bikes a bit more, when in the past they suffered from brake fear….or lack of them. Anyway, onto Simon’s build…..
Yes, you heard it here first. Starting on January 1st we will be ready to go with POST mount disc mounts on Moots Mountain frames and Cyclocross frames…until then….ISO as standard. No more adaptor needed!
It’s a nice build for sure and we will only see disc for Cyclocross get lighter and move to hydraulic versions in the near future. Knocking a couple of pounds off this would be pretty easy…well, maybe not on the wallet.
