'Cross

It's getting to that point in the year, where both roadies and mountain bikers start looking towards the next season. Not necessarily 2011 but that rogue season that somehow brings both segments of cycling together in a joyous union; that is Cyclo-cross.

In what can only be seen as a huge year for us in the cyclo-cross arena with:

- the A23 rim and wheelset making the cross over from the crit circuit to the mud and barriers

- a brand new cross specific rim set to release in the coming weeks

- [with the UCI's latest rule change] our road disc hubs are coming into play in a big way.

What's so special about our Road Disc hubs? Well, for one they are instock, serviceable, durable and did I mention light? How light?

The front road disc hub comes in at 154 grams.
The rear road disc hub comes in at 348 grams.

We offer the road disc with both Campy and Shimano compatible freehubs. 6 bolt, 130mm spacing in the rear and 100mm in the front, both with sealed cartridge bearings. At this point we only offer this in a 32 hole drilling. Oh, did we mention that the A23 is comes in black 32 hole Non-machined sidewall and Sapim CX Ray spokes, colored alloy nipples are all available? Dare we say, hot wheelset? Yes!

For the weekend I'll leave you with the trailer for one of my favorite films on the sport, a must to check out on a rainy day...
