A local shop recently told me that the cyclocross rules specify:
A) No disc brakes. No V brakes. Centerpull cantis only.
B) Brifters required.
I've used the forum search, read all the cyclocross UCI links, and found no references to any rules of any sort regarding brakes or shifters, other than that they are required, must be operable, and must be lever operated. I did find a reference that brifters are allowed.
I take this to mean that:
A) Disc brakes are legal and acceptable, both cable and liquid operated.
B) V Brakes are also legal.
C) Brifters are ALLOWED but not required. Therefore, Indexed MTB shifters and brake levers are acceptable, provided they are mounted on a standard drop bar.
Can someone clarify these rules for me?
