Nice work on the cycle track coming into Glastonbury.
Hmm, veering towards the HyRd then if both work well – self adjusting pads are appealing as I’ve had the BB7s wear down once or twice in really muddy races and leave me with limited brakes. Spyre should be better than BB7 from that point of view, but presumably still not as good as the HyRd.
Where did you get the Spyres from? I think they still aren’t available from Upgrade (as with the HyRd).
Sorry for the thread derail (and for the stray apostrophe in my previous post! :oops:)Posted 4 years agotimburMember
A friend at Upgrade sorted me out with ex-demo’s as a favour 😀Posted 4 years ago
They are due for general release at the end of the month.
Tektro decided to re-design the actuation of the pivot on the Spyres so they will work better with Campag and Sram brake levers. Apparently they have more cable pull for actuation.
For an inboard rear disc mount you will prob need a 160mm set up as 140mm wouldn’t work on the tripster as the caliper snagged the frame.
Price is per end as well.
