two questions:


-who's the wheel builder and what hubs are those?  Those look like HED stinger rims, am I correct?  I wonder how much aero advantage you'd give up in a road race situation.
-why the fugly handlebars? ;)

Very nice... as wens would say, "Where's the mud?"

Is everything working the way you planned?

in order to have mud, we'd have to have rain...and we haven't had material rain in a long, long time. you'll have to settle for dust!

yep, everything's working out great. brakes, 1x10, di2 rear, fat tires+low pressure....all great!

saw the facebook post, so figured you posted it here.


but seriously, what's the provenance of the wheels?

they're stinger 5s, a nice wide bed for a 700x32 tire. definitely a fun, stiff wheel. aero's irrelevant for how i'm using them, but a deeper rim can cut through sand, mud, loose dirt a bit better before getting bogged down.

and who built the wheels, and where did you source your hubs?


the disc brake carbon road wheel market is just waiting for someone to swoop in

you realize that people can run 29er MTB wheels on these bikes, right? tons of disc hub options available, you just need to look outside the road market. hell, you could even build up zipp rims with a disc hub. the standard 303 "cross" build is with a WI hub.

I am hesitant to ask given that this is about cx and I'm likely to get a response that's 15 pages in length, but isn't it a bad idea to build up caliper-brake designed rims with disc brakes? Aren't the designs of the rims different as the brake force is coming from a different location/direction?

The only way that might be an issue is if you had a rim that was specific to the front and only designed to be radially spoked. Disc brake torque is transmitted through the hub and is basically identical to drive torque on the rear wheel except for the direction.
Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

short answer: no.

the hubs and lacing pattern may be different to handle different braking forces. the only 'disadvantage' is that a rim designed for rim braking will generally be heavier than one designed ONLY for disc brakes. this is a bit less of an issue for carbon tubular rims as it is really with carbon clinchers where the brake track is super beefy to handle braking while retaining the bead of the clincher tire.

also, to add on to the post from wens...rim braking is still a big disc, but rim braking is often less powerful.

Not being raced at this time but this looks like the best place to put it.  I friggin' love this bike.

Awesome, RU!

Now find a new water bottle to go with it. That one is out of control!  :)
