- Road bikes with disks are ugly?
All disc equipped road bikes just look like ‘cross bikes. Not necessarily a bad thing, but they’re at odds with the often ‘delicate’ looking nature of them.
Carbon road bikes with aero wheels look a lot less delicate than old steelies – it’s just about what we’re used to.Posted 4 years ago
I win! I win! They’re there, just the top of the forks, like most other road bikes with non-disk brakes!
haha, was thinking rear, more than front. The Madones do look really clean. The downside is that the brakes are shit, but y’know.
^^^ that Cannondale is the worst of all.
Agreed, hideous.Posted 4 years ago
First bike is ugly and it is not the disks that make it so. Aero brakes, however are less ugly, although modulation is not as nice as dual pivots. And don’t get me started on swapping wheels with different rim widths
That’s gopping because you’re running 6600 STIs with that TT cable routing, I’d be convinced I’d be catching my hands on those loops!Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
The Propel is a good looking bike in the flesh, like most Aerobikes are, in pics however they often look weighted or static and we all know thats not the best image to take with you for an Aerobike is it.
As for Discs, phah! No place on a Roadie, the C59 sans discs is a winner, both the BMC and Propel are neat.
If you are a commuter then discs are fine anything other than going to/from the office though is well, embarrassing 😆Posted 4 years ago
