I have road disc and you do not...neener!

I always found sidepull brakes to be pathetic. The current generation of road brakes are much better than the old style mount-bike I've used before, but they still suck. Unfortunately most roadies are imitation whores and will never ever sport components that a pro rider wouldn't ride(which they can't cos of stupidly conservative racing rules). As a result no road carbon forks on the market feature disc brakes. So I suffered and suffered. I refused to buy stupidly expensive brake pads to make up for sidepull suck.

After years of suffering the indignity of under-performing brakes, I met my friend Adam. Adam got mad carbon skills. He turned my oldish carbon fork into a sexy postmount disc fork.


  1. Dude. You suffered and you suffered? No you didn't. Side pulls work pretty dang well. No, they aren't discs- but they work pretty dang well. And if you wanted discs, there have been cross forks available with disc mounts for years.

    Neener neener.

    1. disc cx forks are not compatible with road bikes. It's a different fork rake, would make the bike handle like crap.
