And, right, no tabs for discs.
But what about the mud in the chainstays/bb area? talk to me about the mud....
Tim Johnson, pro rider on Cannondale currently, has blogged about the huge advantages of discs for wet weather and especially for muddy courses. For one, the discs don't pick up the wet, slushy grime as much as rims, so braking is about 1000x better in inclement conditions. I mean, that alone would make me not ever consider getting a high-end carbon CX bike without that huge advantage. Why spend over 2K for something not to at least have the disc tabs? Might as well just get a low-end to mid-tier CX bike without discs instead and save a thousand.
Do you not think he is paid to say that? He is on the cannanodale team and paid to ride and promote their bikes. The fact is that he only raced it one or two times all season. I was at two mud races and saw his disc bike, but it never saw use. There will come a point when he will be made to race it because it will be cannondale's main marketing objective. This will be the same with all Pro's who have Disc in the line up.
There are pluses and minus to Disc, but rest assured, it will not dictate who is on the podium. Some will like them, some will not. All the talk is much to do with nothing, just marketing to sale more higher priced bikes.
