Do you use MTB disc hubs for cross bikes?
I think there are better brakes coming through. Don’t have the money so haven’t looked but the BB7s are old tech. They work well enough though.
FWIW I’ll tell you what I got and why.
I got Velocity A23 tubeless rims on 32h Hope pro2
Velocity tubeless were light and didn’t have a breaking surface (aesthetics 🙂 ). Tubeless wasn’t a requirement, don’t use it, but they are ready.
32H – Heavy but I don’t just race and can only afford one set of wheels. Did give stiff and (3pks) strong build.
Hope hubs because they are easily serviceable and parts readily available.
Justridingalong were very helpful. More choice these days. The stans cross rim looks a good choice. There are lighter hubs than hopes too. Still I was spending £300 on wheels I can’t do that very often.
Not seen much in the way of factory kit. planet X have some carbon disc options. Superstar components do as well. Of course you can source your own bits and build.Posted 4 years agoDibbsMember
Having run hyrds for a few months I found the cable stretched. Do up the barrel adjust and nip up the slack.
That doesn’t solve the problem, the caliper lever has to return fully to open the reservoir and allow fluid to flow and make up for pad wear. If you adjust the cable the it prevents the lever from returning fully.Posted 4 years ago
