Aaaahhh, we knew this was coming, we just didn’t think one of the biggest manufacturers in the world would get one into the open this year. Short of the 2008 Lemond Poprad (Trek) which is no longer made, this is first disc brake crosser from a major manufacturer (update) that a) has real production potential, b) has launched since the UCI’s rule change and c) should be available in the U.S. markets soon.*
UPDATE: Obviously, it’s official now – check the full coverage here.
Anyone bets for a 2013 carbon fiber version?
