SRAM Red Hydraulic Disc Brakes Spotted at Louisville Derby City Cup Cyclocross Races
SRAM’s Red hydraulic disc brakes have been spotted in the wild on more than one bike. We’re hearing reports that Tim Johnson and Jeremy Powers are both riding them this weekend, and this pic above was grabbed from Facebook and sent over via email by one of our more avid readers (thanks RD!) and reportedly had the description “hurry up and look before I have to pull this down.”
Interestingly, it looks like they’re mounted up to that Specialized S-Works Crux that they officially aren’t working on. Well, as a complete bike anyway, you can get the frameset. As we’ve seen from SRAM’s official images before they made us pull them down, the nub at the front of the hoods is noticeably taller than the mechanical version to house the master cylinder.
