is this the end of disc brakes on road and cx bikes AGAIN
UCI have changed their minds and banned disc from CX racing starting 2014, CX being the big market will company not bother making road versions

Union Cycliste Internationale, more like Union Partypoopiste Internationale.
They're more terrified of change than a cat on moving day.

I say this is BS... especially since Giant has just introduced a CX bike with 15mm through-axel to the UCI approved frame list.

Giant is an insider when it comes to the UCI... no way they would be developing stuff you can't race next year.
