    This sort of bike has been selling well for years. I've had a Salsa Vaya as a winter bike / XC hacker / bloody-good-giggle bike for at least 4 years now and it's fantastic! Big Grin

    I love the curves of the Venge and Ridley, but really dislike the Cervelo and BMC - all BMCs actually.

    If you want to get a top end race bike then this is where the manufacturers are going so the question of whether it benefits the average rider is immaterial. It doesn't disadvantage you so why not.

    I think it makes a difference. I have a Ridley Noah (older one before they integrated the brake) and I notice less wind resistance at higher speeds but I think you need to be getting up to 40km/h or so to start appreciating it.

    That's not to say that most people wouldn't be just as well off on a less expensive model.

    Pros of discs:

    Quote:
    - no rim wear

    granted
    Quote:
    - lighter rims available

    maybe, but as a rim still has to be able to hold a tyre at 150psi not sure how much weight in the real world
    Quote:
    - larger tyres are no problem

    frame design not calipers in my experience
    Quote:
    - mudguards are no problem

    frame design, how close the crown and seat tube are to the tyre, brakes are largely irrelevant
    Quote:
    - no brake filth covering the whole bike

    you obviously haven't seen the grey crap over my mtb from the brake pads
    Quote:
    - no loss of braking in the wet

    see my earlier comment, there can be severe braking loss in heavy rain. remember the days when cheap bikes came with steel wheels?
    Quote:
    - less force required at the lever

    design issue
    Quote:
    - no need to loosen off the brake if you break a spoke

    and if you bend a rotor or have one warp? it happens

    Quote:

    Pros of discs over cantis:

    - no fouling crown-mounted lights


    is it really a problem with well design lights?
    Quote:
    - no loss of power with pad wear

    try some cheap pads, far to thick and constant rubbing until they are half worn.
    Quote:
    - easy to set up

    seen how many how to bleed brakes threads on the internet?

    It's a cross bike except the cable guides are in the same place they would be on a road bike, but we're going to call it a 'Gravel Racer', because calling it a tourer would put off the fashionistas.

    Thanks for the feedback - especially to BashTheBox who was kind enough to give a bit more personal email feedback, too, and telling me it was shit Wink - and for the tip on frame rates (Cycle_Jim).

    After the initial rush (it's a weakness of mine...!) I've updated it quite a bit and taken on board everyone's feedback too. It's shorter, less juddery, has a bit better pace between the slips and generally I'm happier with it.

    It's here now...

    All a learning curve - I could take offence from comments but that's purile - as Gkam84 assumed, I'm not 'from' Planet X - I'm a rider... that's all. No money changes hands, and hence it's sort of okay to be amateurish... but hopefully this is a bit neater this time round.

    THANKS ALL! Big Grin
