    New Discolugi Photos

    Howdy, since pretty much everyone likes pictures, we thought we'd post a few of the new Hakkalügi Disc, in both colors (China White and Black Lung/Gangrene) and both build configurations (Ultegra and Rival).

    You're right we do like pictures, I don't suppose you have any of the Riply do you? Shots along the same lines as above would be great, but shots of them being boxed up for delivery to stores would be even better.

    Took me a minute to figure out what MCXWC 2012 means. Props to Don Myrah

    I'm ignorant, so forgive me.

    Why mechanical Disc's instead of Hydraulic? I'm sure there's a reason but I cant figure it out.

    Why does the seatstay on the black frame intersect the seattube well below the top tube while on the white frame it intersects right at the top tube? The black frame looks slightly smaller than the white frame, does this configuration help soften up the smaller frame by allowing a bit more flex?

    Very nice.

    How much different from the non disc version outside of the discs?

    Not many hydro brifters out there. Formula debuted one earlier in the year, but it's been quiet for a while. The TRP Hywire has also shown a slick Di2 setup. Canyon has a prototype. There was also the SRAM proto. Magura has the RT6 and RT8 hydro RIM brakes, so I can't imagine they're too far behind.

    Personally, I'm adopting a wait-and-see attitude. Odds are, SRAM will produce a gorgeous-looking, super-light piece of crap that's impossible to bleed. Shimano will create an ugly-yet-functional first try followed by a dazzling second attempt. Hope will CNC something amazing, Formula will come up with a curvy brake and Magura's will be a bit heavy but super reliable.

    I was so busy lusting after this that I totally didn't even notice that. Good catch.

    Are they available for order now? Is there a backlog of orders?

    For hydraulic brakes we are all using the 324 labs adapter. It works flawlessly:

    The angle between the seat stay and chain stay is shared per about 2 sizes so you will see a different attachment point on various sizes.

    There are none available just yet. We've been using this:
    Introducing the 324 brake adapter system with Formula hydraulic brakes or the new Shimano cable actuated calipers. They work very well.

    Thanks! We've been having a blast on it... the main changes are:

    Lowered BB (excellent cornering)
    Tapered head tube and steerer tube to increase front end steering precision and strength to weight ratio.
    Enve fork
    Cable routing is better for CX, running along the top tube instead of the down tube
    Stiffer frame
    More tire clearance

    That's about it...

    Hello Vampir,

    We do have some of them in stock for the intro: 55, 58 and 61 in white are in stock and shipping out.

    Smaller sizes in white and black in all sizes will be here in the next month or so.

    Cheers!
