Another Teaser of Van Dessel’s New Disc Brake Road Bike, Now w/ Shimano Flat Mount Caliper Standard!
After seeing Koga’s fork teaser, Van Dessel threw this rendering our way of their upcoming carbon Motivus Maximus disc brake road bike.
Founder Edwin Bull says “we’re using this on the road frame – just nice and clean. For the disc road fork we’re doing standard 140mm post mount for now. I just felt the (new flat mount) standard was a bit too (new) and Shimano didn’t have much details and seemed to still be working those out when we were opening the molds, so didn’t want to commit to tooling on what was essentially still a work in progress.”
This and the other new carbon bikes we showed here are scheduled to ship from the factory on July 23, actual real world photos to follow. For now, this rendering shows how an adapter works with the flat mount to accommodate traditional brake calipers. And yep, I called flat mount a “standard”.
