    Daffy of this shire

    There’s a hobbit on STW?

    On the subject of hobbits, I really like these frames, but second hand 51cm frames seem quite scarce.

    Where were the TRP Hyrd from? Didnt think they were out yet?

    Hyrds were a ‘industry gift’ I guess! Sample set but brand new. Doddle to set up and on shakedown ride I can happily say they are fantastic.

    I sold that to Daffy! He had it less than a week and had a change of heart i believe.
    Its a fantastic bike. See my thread about it in profile.
    Enjoy!

    Nosemine, which stem did you use? The pro vibe has a 45mm stack and is cutting it fine…

    Looks good. Interested to hear how you get on with the HyRds – looking to add one to my 2 year old Pro6 – one of the BB7s is on it’s last legs, and I’m undecided between the HyRd and Spyre.

    I think the spyres look very nice and reports are good. The hyrds are a bit chunky but no more heavy than bb7. Very powerful and so easy to set up. I think when things get dirty again they will really come into their own.

    I’ve got some Spyres and can report back that they are lovely.
    Work well with Ultegra 9 speed sti’s.
    Currently on a Tripster so a cheaper version of the above.

    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:)

    If you do go for the hyrds make sure you ask for 2 x 160 as in the box I got 140/160, not much use for the pro6!

    Thanks Tang – is it 2 brakes in one kit then? That isn’t clear form the details on the Upgrade website, but they are reasonable value if that is the case.

    I think it must be per end. Mine were free and in a blank box….

    Tang, leave the post where it is, I have no problem with that.

    A friend at Upgrade sorted me out with ex-demo’s as a favour 😀
    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.
