Trek, Specialized, Scott, Canyon and Cannondale have all released new frames in time for the biggest race of the year. With aero very much the watchword these days, have other factors like braking suffered in the pursuit of minimising drag?
Speaking of brakes, fans of discs will be pleased to know that testing will begin in professional races as early as the end of the 2015 season. Plenty of issues regarding varying hub widths and thru axles though. What do you think, does the World Tour need discs? Leave us a comment and let us know.
