Perhaps if bikes were redesigned with greater safety in mind?
I have heard rumblings that the disc brake trial is to be dropped - "weight" seems to be the reason*
*or is that excuse?
They hide the dissapated heat of a motor too well.
weight - what a load of absolute nonesense................especially when they are already adding weight to their bikes to bring them up to the UCI limit
also Marcel Kittel and Boonen have both won sprint stages with disc brakes fitted, so how can it be a weight problem. Also cannondale drapac have been using the supersix with disc brakes and the slice with disc brakes and have reported no issues
Brakes? Those round things are really circular induction motors.
Hang on a minute, my hat has blown off. Bloody tin foil.
Brakes that make you go faster? We'll go 50-50 on it.
I'd have liked that but it appears they no longer exist.
So that's 1 confirmed incident
nope not even 1 confirmed incident , even the article says , apparently caused by a disc brake rotor. We say apparently because we don’t know the full facts of the incident that occurred
Also if it was from the rotor......were is the slices from the tyres and spokes, cause the would Defo be some with where the slice is on the knee
