    That Evo Disc certainly is decent value for money, even if the groupset is the out-going version. Put the money saved into a set of light carbon wheels and use the OEM wheels for training…. you’ve got two bikes for the price of one. A pity that nasty lime green isn’t available for the disc model!

    Planet X (UK based online company) has done a similar thing with resurrecting the Viner brand.

    They seem pretty heavy for carbon bikes. I’ve got some old BMC Al bikes that weigh almost the same.

  • Front tire on backwards?

    • So that was what was holding the bike back!

        Great retort! : D : D!

        Good catch!

    So an open mold Chinese frame rides just as good as every other name brand frame costing thousands of dollars who would have thought

    So the disc version costs $300 more, is 1.7 pounds heavier, and less aero. How is this better? Typically you pay about a $1000 a pound to make a bike lighter. Now you pay get to pay more to make a bike heavier?

    Road disc is being shoved down our throat by media and the industry.

    I can see it on an “all road” bike where you can use tires greater than 32c, or on a touring bike where you need more powerful braking because of load, or if you ride in the rain a lot, or if you really have to have carbon rims and do a lot of really steep descents, but on a dedicated road bike that fits 28c or less tires just plain stupid.

    And yes I have tried several bikes with road discs.
