  • This is a 2019 model and doesn't even have disc brakes.

    • Sounds like an advantage, Chris Froome doesn't like disk breaks.

      • I personally prefer hydraulic disk brakes over mechanical disc or V brakes.

      • They're annoying for mechanics, too heavy/not aero enough for the pros, but great for the average cyclist due to great stopping power in the wet (compared to rim brakes) and less ongoing maintenance.
        I'm not Froome, I love disc brakes.

        • so true about the stopping power. my rear wheel went taco and the rim brakes are only effective at certain points on the rim which aren't bent, so i'm relying 90% on my front disc brake. took a while to get used to at first…almost went flying over the bars on a hard brake lol

    • Not sure about the weather conditions in Wollongong. But in the sunshine state, disks are best for mtb, commuters, less experienced road cyclists, uber eat cyclists. I'm fine with both. If it's a training route with long descending, I ride a disks. If I race in dry weather, 100% rims.

  • I'm guessing someone found the missing shipping container for these to have not sold during peak Covid sales.

  • What’s the best value MTB? Either new or used. Thanks.
