Looks like the perfect winter trainer.
Those TRP CX9’s are brilliant stoppers. Put them on my audaxytourerthingy, I’d be happy plummeting off the Tourmalet with them.

My disc brake upgrade (TRP hylex as I run SSCX) is sat in the garage waiting to replace the 1992 LX cantis (off my first ever MTB!) currently on the bike. So I can go from a totally to just mostly shonky build in preparation for next season. Oh, and for the 24hr VPCX race (where cross doesn’t belong) in May!
Also got the fork, wheels (Crest on Am Classic and a 130mm Novatec rear) waiting to go on. Just need to figure out if I go with an A2Z adapter on the rear or try and get an adapter fashioned for the odd bolt holes in the dropout (like an IS mount but wrong spacing, and for guards and rack mounting I think)…
Disk brakes are so wrong on a race cx.
It’s about keeping the speed up.
I lost places in the last race of the season when my cantis a) froze and b) the mud on the wheels froze, and I couldn’t stop on the downhills and so had to run them or hit a lot of trees. I know one of our two CX series runs on atypical cross terrain, more like MTB courses, and braking is a good thing there, but this was the more conventional series…Posted 4 years ago
