With the recent changes to cyclocross rules from the UCI permitting the use of disc braking systems on cyclocross bikes I started looking for a hub suitable and did not find much around. Some people may consider adapting an MTB rear hub for the purpose but I wanted a better solution. So I asked my road hub supplier and I have just received a drawing for a cyclocross specific 130mm 6 bolt rear hub. I think it might be a great solution for the 3 Peaks race where the long downhill sections can reduce braking performance even with well setup cantilever brakes. I hope these go into production soon and I can have some samples here for building. If you want a set made for your new disc braked CX bike frame – get in touch. I expect them to be light and good value for money too.
