First up... Cycocross!!!! I am going to run disc breaks again and am trying to find a good option for a wheelset. I know there are many, many, nay sayers on disc breaks for cross. Well I embrace change, you all can take your canti breaks and your 26" MTB's and suck it!!!
Now if only the manufacturers can follow suit. WTF guys? Get your S%$T together!! There are like 5 companies that are making disc bikes yet I have found one that makes a wheelset. I see Easton has one, but unless your JPow, us working stiffs can't get our hands on them.
|See, they do exist... JPow's ride..|
On another subject entirely, the only logical thing to do with cross on the horizon is enter a 60 mile MTB race, the Berryman Epic.
I have never done this race and it has been on my "to do" list for a while now. From reading other blogs n such I have a handle on conditions, etc... So I have two questions to my 3 readers.. I am sure some of you have raced BTE before.
First, I think I need to get some beefier tires. But what? I normally run a Fast Track on the back and a Captain on the front. From what I gather, its rocky as crap and I know I will be in no mood to be changing flat tires.
Second, camel-pack or no? I freggin hate those damn things, yet I would rather wear one than run out of fluids and/or food...
