Hi Ben,
I'm not a CX rider or owner, so no practical experience here. But I love to watch CX on TV, and I think with all the mud and snow they ride through, disc brakes will make sence!

Disc drakes are forbidden in official cx brakes... I ignore the reason...

Moreover, I don't like them......

They sit nicely on moustache bars too...

And, thanx Ben.. I'm putting a lot of love into my little vintage rig....

I'm actually betting that Hope Tec beat both the big S's to the post ! Or just as good, Campag Super-Record/CX with hydraulic disks !


Believe it or not Hope did this a very good number of years ago by creating a cable converter that allowed the use of drop bar brifters with hydraulic discs. Sadly very rare.

In 2000 Raleigh Special Products produced a limited number of Randonneur touring bikes with these Magura brakes.
