As a 2x U23 National CX Champion and a pro road racer on team United Health Care, Danny Summerhill has had an interesting career. At one point he seemed to almost give up cross completely, only to come back racing stronger than ever. In the current rift between disc brake and cantilevers, Danny seems to take the middle road and has one of each. We took a minute to get a look at Danny’s Ibis Hakkalügi disc while at CX Worlds.
Check out the bike after the break.
Danny actually had two Hakkalügis on hand, with one set up as a disc brake bike, and one with cantis. While the two bikes are different because of the brakes that are employed, they are also quite different in their set up. Danny’s disc bike is set up as a 1×10 with a Sram red drive train. The left shifter is still there and presumably functioning-just not attached to anything. Up front is an Enve disc fork holding some ROL carbon tubies in place.
Like most CX riders on SRAM Red, Danny runs his hoods up high on a Ergosum Team bar with the 3T logo blacked out. Note the inline barrel adjuster for the front brake for presumably fast adjustments on the fly.
For brakes Danny is running standard Avid BB7s with the Avid HSX Rotors (160 ft, 140rr). If you look closely at the hubs, each spoke head is fitted with a spoke head washer.
Danny sits on a custom Fizik Antares saddle clamped to a Fizik Cyrano seatpost.
Clement PDX tubular mud tires were the choice of the day for Summerhill.
To keep the chain in place (no XX1 CX rings here) Danny uses an MRP clamp on 1X guide on a standard SRAM Red crankset. A pair of Crank Brothers Candy 11 pedals keep Danny’s feet on the pedals.
