Hi, im speccing a bike for Strathpuffer and came up with the following based on what I normally ride. I normally ride XC endurance events and would appreciate any good thoughts on the following
On one (geared) inbred frame
Magura Odur fork (because its v brake compatible see below)
Shimano XT V brakes (although Im starting to consider disc's!)
Has anyone run V brakes in Strathpuffer and how did they find it? I usually run V's and am wondering if they are up to the job for 24hrs in the mud lol so would appreciate any thoughts from anyones experience.
The Odur forks look attractive because they seem to fit the bill, granted they are not race forks but can be switched between V's and discs.
If I did use discs what XC discs you recommend , I looked at Magura louise and Avid Juicy Ultimates but am pretty much in the dark having been stubborn and ridden V's for my entire riding life !
